There's my photo
FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska - Sgt. 1st Class Michael Richardson, A Company, 1st Battalion, 52nd Aviation Regiment, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade, and his daughters Iyana, 9, and Makayla (right), 8, look at photos in the Child, Youth and School Services School Age Services photography exhibit. One of Iyana's photos won first prize for her age group in color processing. Twenty-four children from SAS, ranging in age from 6 to 11, participated in the first annual 4-H and Boys and Girls Clubs of America photography contest which challenged them to utilize various light sources, subjects and types of processing including digital, color and black and white film throughout the 10-week photography class. "They were able to learn that everything looks so different when you're looking through a camera," said Jonny Cain, CYSS Homework Lab instructor and one of the teachers of the photography class. "I would like for them to always look at everything differently because of that." Six winners were chosen; one from each age group and type of processing. Winners' photos will compete at the regional competition and if successful there, will go to the national competition, Cain said.
