Bring your camera and spend a 1/2 day in a beautiful forested area that is bordered by the Swift Creek and the Neuse River. Learn new techniques and/or build upon techniques that you may al-ready possess. This workshop is open to amateur and experienced photographers. A naturalist will accompany the group to identify and answer questions about the Flora and Fauna.

Everyone is welcome from beginners to advanced level photography enthusiasts! If you are interested in learning techniques on how to capture images in nature  using macro, how to position your shooting angle, and working with different lighting techniques, then you will benefit from this workshop.

You will leave with beautiful images of wildflowers, landscapes, Cypress Swamp, Dragonflies, Butterflies, and an 1830’s built farmhouse with a family cemetery on the property.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
