Photographs from “The Best of Lakewood” contest sponsored by Robi’s Camera Center are currently on display at the City of Lakewood, 6000 Main Street, Lakewood, WA.
Robi’s Camera Center recently conducted a class on digital photography to 16 youth. General Manager, Tod Wolf, covered the technical aspects of digital photography including light-natural light/ambient, flash, exposure-aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, composition-rule of thirds, leading lines, framing, depth, angle of view and stopping action.
The boys, members of Boy Scout Troop 51, were tasked to use their skills and photograph the “Best of Lakewood” over the next two weeks following Robi’s camera class. Out of the hundreds of photographs submitted, Robi’s Camera Center selected the best five photos and one display project that demonstrate an aspect of their new photography knowledge. “I was most impressed when the boys reviewed and critiqued all the photographs at the final class. It was great fun. Plus they showed a strong understanding of good composition, lighting and more.”
The top photographs were taken by Ryan Harrington, Sean Hobbs, Hunter Larsen, Matt Lewis, AJ McReynolds and Chris Pressley. The photographs are currently on display at the City of Lakewood and will travel to the Lakewood History Museum to be displayed at the Museum.
Robi’s Camera Center, Labs and Customer Framing has been in Lakewood for over 35 years providing photofinishing and camera gear to professionals and hobbyists.
