TERN FEST WORKSHOPS
1. A room or building in which goods are manufactured or repaired.
2. A usually brief intensive educational program for a relatively small group of people that focuses especially on techniques and skills in a particular field.
So, what is a Tern Fest Workshop?
Our professional, mentor-led workshops are a deep dive into a particular subject, with the goal of enhancing a participant's knowledge or skills on a given topic.
But what does this look like?
Tern Fest Workshops have included creative writing projects, photography, landscape and wildlife sketches, nature journaling, and more. The activity may be preceded or concluded by educational lecture or guided discussion.
Who is it for?
The Tern Fest hosts various workshops for various ages. Pay close attention to the Tern Fest Schedule color-coding system to ensure that you're planning on attending the workshop best suited to your interests.

Wildlife Photography: Tips, Techniques, and Settings for Success
Saturday, June 3rd
3:30PM - 5:00PM
Learn how to use the settings on your camera to get the photos you desire. Cameras to be covered include basic point-and-shoot to DSLR's and everything in between. Covered topics will include going beyond the automatic settings, the basics of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.
We will go into detail about how to capture landscape and wildlife, including those challenging bird photos. Participants are more than welcome to bring their cameras and questions regarding settings, and mentor Don Kluting (read Don's bio here) will be happy to help with a hands-on session following the classroom session.
