On Saturday, May 21, eight Brunswick County 4-H TiLT (Teens in Leadership Training) members participated in a photography and presentation workshop. Participants included John and Dillon Bernheisel, Kenan Bridges, Will Gauldin, Janzen Jones, Sammi Lawrence, John Macon and Savanna Michaux.
TiLT trains 4-H teens to plan, lead and execute the Summer Fun Camps with the assistance of 4-H staff and a handful of volunteers through fun and informative workshops during the school year.
The photography workshop was led by Frank and Stacie Walter of Time 2 Remember Portrait Studios in Bolivia. The teens learned to operate the 4-H cameras to capture special moments during the 4-H Passport to Adventure, Summer Fun camps this year. They hand-made a special piece of equipment to use for lighting with still-shots and also learned how to adjust ISOs for indoor and outdoor photography, as well as learned how to take action shots. They did all this by the 4-H motto, “Learn By Doing!”
The presentation workshop was led by 4-H alumni Dorothy Conley, a rising senior at UNCW, who has used her college training and years of 4-H experience to train many in the art of public speaking. She gave an informative, thought-provoking workshop. The teens learned correct presentation formatting, how to dress to impress, dos and don’ts and much more. She was also on hand to review several of the 4-H teen’s presentations and give them informative feedback.
The next two workshops will be in June: Red Cross First Aid and CPR certified at Coastal Horizon’s in Wilmington. The 4-H Summer Fun programs begin Monday, June 13. For more information about the TiLT program, Summer Fun programs and other 4-H activities, visit http://brunswickco4h.shutterfly.com/.
