Come and learn the best techniques for photographing birds. Join wildlife photographer Bill Golden and Bonne Coe for a bird photography workshop on Saturday, April 23, 2022 between 10:00 AM. and 12 Noon (rain date April 30). The workshop will be 2 hours. The first 45 minutes will be instructional with a photo presentation. Bill and Bonnie will explain what settings are most effective in photographing birds and share tips on how to photograph birds in flight. The remainder of the time will be spent in the field giving participants hands-on supervised experience on the grounds of Bethany Arts Community. Attendees will be invited to remain on the property until 3 PM if they wish to practice on their own.
