This TILL Talk will be entry to mid-level oriented, so you can understand how a pro photographer approaches a scene, determines what to focus attention on, what lighting to add, and how to make any scene the best it can be. There will be plenty of time for discussion, so bring your inspiration, your love of plants and insects, and a lot of questions!
