“This will be a walk in the woods, so come prepared. Attire should be shoes and clothes that can get wet and dirty. It can be chilly, so layers are good. Light this time of year can be marginal, so slow exposures or high ISOs are likely. What camera gear? As always, the best camera is the one you have with you. A tripod is always a good idea especially a light-weight one. Bring what you are comfortable hiking with. If it’s a moist day, think about how you’re going to keep your gear dry. If multiple lenses, a backpack is useful (for snacks, too!). I find it useful to have the ability to go from wide to tele, so a zoom if nice. Be thinking trees, leaves, bark, mushrooms, ferns, newly germinating plants, a creek, a pond, a cliff, silhouettes, frames, shapes, contrasts, etc. There are some birds, mostly the commonly seen species, but these are more the subject for the long-lens folks. Deer are likely, but not close up. Off the trails, poison oak is prevalent, though pretty much dormant this time of year. There are some steeper places, possibly wet and slick, so you may want a walking stick.”
We will have time to talk about photographic opportunities and strategies both before and after the shoot. Members should indicate whether they plan to participate in the comments below or in response to the accompanying email. If there are more than four or five we will arrange carpools to avoid parking problems.
