Other Important Information
While our guides are all expert photographers, we might not be experts with your specific camera model. In order to get the most out of the tour, you will need a camera that has the ability to control ISO, aperture and shutter speed independently, and know how to access those features on your camera. As for lenses, a wide angle zoom lens is the most useful for landscape pictures (equivalent 16-35 on a full-frame camera or 10-22mm on a crop sensor). A mid-range lens can also come in handy or if you don't have a wide angle (24-70 on full frame or 18-55 on crop sensor). Polarizer filters are also fun to have to pop the landscapes as well as a nuetral density filters to accomplish the smooth water effect. Tripods are a must since we are shooting in low light situations at sunset. Don't forget extra batteries, memory cards, and cleaning supplies. nnIf you need to rent gear for your trip we encourage you to use BorrowLenses.com
