How to earn your badge
- Show how to use a camera to take a good photograph.
- Make up a scrapbook showing different ways photographs can be used, like in the news, advertising or art.
- Take 10 or more photos and show these to your Lodge or an adult. Why do you like these photos? What made you take them?
Your leader might like to put some of your photos on display or share them with the local newspaper. If they do, your parents will need to say it’s OK first.
The photographs could be part of a project about things like animals or plants. You could take photos when you’re on a trip, to capture things that happen on the day.
Remember to ask permission before you take a photo of somebody.
Every individual who undertakes an activity badge should face a similar degree of challenge and as a result some requirements may need to be adapted. It is completely acceptable to change some of the requirements of the badges to allow individuals to access the badge (for example where there are special needs, cultural issues, or religious considerations to take into account) and the requirements outlined for activity badges do allow for some flexibility in order to obtain the badge. If you would like help or advice when considering adapting the requirements of a badge please contact UK Headquarters.
