LINCOLN, Neb. – The seventh annual Spring Photography Workshop will be held in two sessions at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp near Halsey. The first session is April 17-18 and the other is April 18-19.
The workshop will emphasize capturing outdoor beauty while participants hone their photography technique by shooting wildlife and the outdoors, said Connie Cox, Nebraska 4-H camp coordinator.
The guest speaker for the event is Randy Hampton, a retired photojournalist and photo editor for the Lincoln Journal Star. Hampton also taught at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln journalism college for 20 years.

Participants who are 15 and older are encouraged to attend. Lodging will be in a dorm-style cabin. All meals, lodging and snacks will be provided. Participants should bring overnight gear, bedding, warm clothing for the early mornings, personal needs, medication, a flashlight, film, a camera and other supplies.
