Girl Scout Junior Digital Photography Badge

Girl Scout Comic Artist BadgeATTENTION
4th to 5th grade
Cadette Girl Scouts
or leaders of said Girl Scouts
or even the parents!

Thanks to technology, you always have a camera in your pocket, a cell phone! Knowing how to use it properly, however, is another matter entirely. This class will make you a better photographer with just a few simple steps, regardless if you use a cellphone or traditional camera!

Todd Pic In ClassMy name is Todd Tevlin and not only am I an artist, I have also been a photographer since I was a teenager, back when this thing called “film” existed and you had to know every little setting to get a proper exposure. Kids these days, don’t know how good they have it! *waves cane*

KCW Class PicIn 2015 I started teaching my KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP to 8-12 year olds in the St. Louis, MO area. Since that time, I’ve added after school and homeschool classes as well as Girl Scout badges. It’s become my new career and I will keep adding more classes!

Girl Scout Photo Badge #1
Girl Scout Photo Badge #4
Girl Scout Photo Badge #2
This ONE hour class primarily focuses on cell phone photography, but if someone wants to bring a traditional camera, that is perfectly fine! A lot of what is taught will crossover. Things taught include the fundamentals of photography, like how to properly frame a shot and understanding the types of shots available, how to use lighting, and various tricks and camera settings.

PLEASE NOTE: This class requires everyone to bring a device that can shoot photos (cell phone, tablets, video cameras, etc)

ALSO: Because they have to edit their photos, I’ve found a free editing app for Android / iOS that everyone will need to download on their device prior to class. Once you sign up I will send you links.

LASTLY: There WILL be homework as they will have to print out their photos and make a collage.

Class PicWhat I teach will meet these badge requirements:

Step One: (Choice 1) Interview a local photographer (that’s me!)

Step Two: (Choice 1 & 3) Photograph a friend or group of friends, photograph a landscape.

Step Three: (Choice 1,2 & 3) Fix something, change something, add something.

Step Four: (Choice 1) Create a collage (HOMEWORK)

Step Five: (Choice 2) Stage an art show (NEXT MEETING using Step Four Collage)

Class PicI have a flexible schedule and can teach this at your next Girl Scout meeting anywhere in the St. Louis area. This one hour course is $8.00 per Girl Scout and includes all art supplies for the event. I accept Credit Cards and Cash. No checks please.

Four reasons:

1) EXPERIENCE: I’m an experienced videographer who will actually teach your girls how to shoot better videos. Those places make you shoot videos before hand and will only help you edit them on their devices, or they make the girls shoot a commercial-like video showcasing their products. They don’t actually teach you how to shoot better videos, which is kind of important for this badge! You get what you pay for!

2) NO WAIT TIMES: You will be on a 6-12+ month wait list with them, with me you can have class a week after registering if that’s what you need.

3) NO EXTRA TRAVEL: Why pile girls into vehicles to go to a sub-par class at a retailer when I will drive to your meeting place to teach my quality class instead!

4) SUPPORT LOCALLY: These retailers only want you to play with their products so you will buy them, whereas I’m a small business owner trying to make a living with teaching classes like this.

! P L E A S E   N O T E !
If you’re meeting is in GREEN circle, a minimum of THREE Girl Scouts are needed for class. YELLOW circle needs minimum of FIVE and there is an additional $10 charge due to distance traveled. RED circle needs a minimum of TEN, and there will be an additional $20 charge due to distance traveled. Anything outside of these circles is too far for me to travel to, sorry!

Troop not big enough? Team up with another local troop around you and I’ll teach them all at once!
