Hey everyone, in our ongoing quest to make Red Rock the best camp it can possibly be, we have decided to start a new skill. Many of the skills we do at Red Rock are such a part of the camp that it would be hard to picture Red Rock without them. Water Sports, Wall Climbing, and Archery are just some. We think that a photography skill would be an amazing addition to our current fleet of activities. If you have ever been out here, you know how beautiful Red Rock Lake is. What better location than Red Rock to spend time learning how to capture the incredibly elegant work that God has done on camera? So we now have some Fujifilm Finepix s1600 digital cameras for taking pictures and some aspire one netbooks for photo editing. The idea is for campers to gain a basic understanding of how to take quality pictures, and also learn how to use computer software to sort, edit, and manipulate photos. All software used will be free and downloadable off the internet so campers can go home and use the same programs they used at camp on their home computers. So what are your thoughts? Do you like this idea? What would you like to see in a photography Skill? Leave a comment below. All pictures were taken with the same cameras that will be used in the actual skill.
