Totally Not Panicking: Girl Scouts and Photography Lessons

This is what the badge will look like. I think. Probably

 

 

I have been wrangled into doing a short blurb about photography for my daughter’s Girl Scout troop. Not wrangled exactly but I feel the same feeling of anxiety that I would have if I were being literally wrangled with an actual lasso.

It’s silly to be nervous about talking in front of 7-8 young girls, right? I want to tell them everything that I know about photography. There are two problems with that scenario. #1 The girls have the attention span of . . . . That is a lie. They don’t have an attention span per se. Plus, at least one of them screams. Then they alllll scream.

#2 There is too much information to tell them in the 5-10 minutes that they might actually listen.

There is another mom doing the project with me. We both know about photography. We’re going to have to keep it simple.

So that means I should not be looking up DIY photography projects that will take more money and time than I have. Right. I should not do that no matter how cool light boxes make every thing look. So cool . . .

However, for the sake of keeping it simple, we’ve decided to do a photo booth. The meeting area has nothing interesting to take pictures of at all. There’s a basketball hoop, a table and a few chairs. It’s a very boring spot as far as photography.

I think a photo booth will be fun for the girls. It will be fairly easy to make props. Feather boa, giant sunglasses and a viking helmet are on the shopping list.

It will be fine. New year + new me = less panic attacks. I will try not to hyperventilate.  I should be thankful that I wasn’t chosen for the horseback riding badge.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
