Develop your skills in photographing insects at twilight. In the evening the sky comes alive with insects from the frightening to the beautiful. We will learn how to attract these creatures with sheets and floodlights. On Friday Bill will share his techniques focusing on hand-held photography in the field with an insect walk and his experience working on the children’s book, ‘Minnesota Bug Hunt’.
