John K. Putnam gave an insightful and tip-filled talk on Working the Scene: Deciding What to Shoot and When to Shoot It.

Have you ever watched a beautiful sunset from your kitchen window and thought, “why didn’t I go out?” Have you ever gotten up really early to photograph sunrise only to have dull, gray skies? Have you ever gone out to shoot, gotten to the end of your driveway, and not be able to decide which way to turn? John provided advice and pointers to resources to help us decide where to go, when to go there, and what to shoot when we arrive.
