Do you like to take picture? Then, here’s an activity for you!! Select 1 or 2 pictures that you’ve made in the past year, or that you make before the contest, and mount them separately on poster board or construction paper to make your exhibit(s).
Select photographs that show imagination! People don’t always have a smile and your dog doesn’t have to sit and look at you. Start by selecting a variety pf subjects to photograph. Experiment with different angles. Remember to get close enough to your subject for a good shot with sharpness. Be aware of the lighting, so that your pictures capture the true color.
