I have been traveling to south Florida in February for the past few years and have discovered a wealth of fantastic photo opportunities. The Everglades is such a unique ecosystem with its slow moving river of water in a sawgrass setting full of interesting mammals and birds. We’ll have time to shoot big landscapes along with Florida’s famous coastline and Everglades wetlands. Also, this tour will take advantage of the great birding in the area. We will hookup with local professional guides to photograph burrowing owls, numerous species of herons, hawks and wading birds that are fairly habituated to give us a better chance at bird photography success.
EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (17-35mm range) and a medium telephoto lens up to 300-400mm. For this class, I am recommending bring a larger telephoto lens for birds. 400-600mm range would be ideal. You can also have a 1.4 extender along to increase focal length. If you do not own such a lens, then consider renting one for the week. Here are several places that rent lenses. https://www.lensrentals.com https://www.borrowlenses.com
