Cub Scout Night - May 28, 2008

On May 28, 2008, Pack 51 Tiger Cubs came to the Studio as one of their "Go See It" projects. We talked about what it means to be a good Scout; we talked about recycling and how the Studio tries to be mindful of the environment as much as possible; we talked about communication; and of course, we talked about photography!

Matthew, on the left, is the son of Brian and Jody, and Brandon, on the right, is the son of Michael and Hope. It took a little bit for them to relax and warm up to the camera, but it wasn't long before they were pressing the button on the camera, too!
They showed me how to do the official Cub Scout Handshake . . .
We went over the Cub Scout Promise and they showed me how to make the Cub Scout Sign . . .

The two raised fingers stand for two parts of the Cub Scout Promise -- "to help other people" and "to obey the Law of the Pack". The two raised fingers also look like the sharp ears of the wolf ready to listen to Akela (ah-KAY-la, means "good leader"; the boy's adult partner/parent is considered to be Akela).

Aren't they handsome!!!

The Cub Scout Salute is serious stuff ... you can tell by their faces! The Salute is a way for the Scouts to show respect to their den leaders. They also salute the flag to show respect for their country.

A light-hearted moment ... love those smiles!

Matthew ... looking sharp, too ... already working the pose!

Scout Buddies!

They liked playing with the "noise-makers"...

One of my favorite pictures ...

Matthew was behind the camera pressing the button for this one.

And Brandon was working the camera for this one. Give them both a few years and you never know ... maybe they'll even be assisting us in the Studio!

The Cub Scout bandanas...

One last parting shot for the camera ...

We enjoyed having you at the Studio and hope you'll come back and visit us again sometime soon!
