June Field Trip - Afternoon Black & White Composition

  • Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park 15656 Janes Memorial Scenic Dr Naples, FL, 34117 United States (map)

We’ll head over to the western Everglades, the Big Cypress, and Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park to photograph in harsh afternoon light, especially geared for black and white photos.

We’ll meet at Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park at 2pm. Fakahatchee is just north of Tamiami Trail, north of Everglades City.

Be aware, the park requires either a yearly park pass or $3 per vehicle.

What to bring:

Summer in the Big Cypress is unpredictable, just as it is here in the Everglades. It may be sunny, hot, with blue skies and big puffy clouds, or it may have dark thunder clouds and rain. Bring all the camera gear you think you might need. Especially rain covers, lightning triggers, spare batteries, filters, along with the standard cameras and lenses. We’ll be mostly in and out of our cars so weight won’t be an issue.

Robert is also planning on leading those that are interested on a swamp walk. If you plan on doing this, remember to bring along proper clothing to wear in the swamp, tie-able closed toed shoes (an old pair of sneakers will do great), socks, long pants, and a dry change of clothes for afterward. If you have ANY questions on this, please email us and we’ll do our best to answer.

Also, don’t forget sunscreen, bug spray, and WATER! And if you’re one who needs to eat on a regular basis, brings snacks. It’s not the jungle, but close. Not much out there except for Everglades City, but you don’t want to have to leave the group to grab more water or a snack, right? Wouldn’t hurt to bring a little cooler with some goodies along.

Hope to see you there!
