A LLANDRINDOD Wells Scout has won an award at an event hosted by a Powys camera club.

Hay Camera Club, as part of its strategy to provide more outreach in the local community, organised and delivered a photography badge event on Saturday, November 4, for Scouts across Radnorshire.

Members of the club gave a series of presentations with practical interludes to a group of youngsters, the majority of whom used mobile phones. It was two-way learning with club members getting to grips with mobile phone photo app Snapseed for the first time.

Members were hugely impressed with how the young people grabbed abstract and arty images so quickly and processed them on the way back to the classroom.


Claire Bunton, county commissioner for Radnor Scouts, said: “The day was a huge success, the young people's skills developed immensely as the day went on and they produced some truly stunning pictures.

“Radnor Scouts would like to say a huge thank you to Hay Camera Club. There were lots of smiling faces at the end which shows the young people enjoyed the day and feel they have achieved.”

The event was organised by club vice chair Nigel Steward who said: “Thank you to everyone who made the day such a success.

“I think it is fair to say we all gained something from the day – the use of apps to edit images, how raw talent was tapped to get a good picture.”

All the Scouts qualified for their badges and Gethyn Price, from Llandrindod, won the Hay Camera Club shield for the best image of the day.
