St. Johns County 4-H youth photos are being exhibited at the St Johns County Administration Building at 500 San Sebastian View, since March 1st through April 21st 2016. The St. Johns County Cultural Council hosted an opening reception for this exhibit on Tuesday, March 1st at 8:15am at the St Johns County Administration Building. The public was welcome and encouraged to attend. The 4-H Youth Development Program provides several opportunities throughout the year for youth to learn and develop skills related to photography as well as compete at the local and state level with their photos. Photo-related learning opportunities take place at 4-H summer camps, county workshops and club meetings with the guidance of 4-H volunteers, Master Gardeners and the St. Augustine Camera Club. Photos submitted for competition are judged on focus, lighting, subject matter, composition, impact, and creativity. Photo subject areas include people, animals, plant/flora, scenic, architectural elements, still life, and 4-H theme. The 4-H photography project aims to encourage 4-H members to use photography as a meaningful communication tool in their lives.
