It's Florida and the sun has been blasting itself 100% this week. On Sunday there's a counter protest of us gainesvillians vs the Westboro Baptist Church which is coming to our towns Churchs(grrr). I want to take pictures of this event, but I'm like a new born baby with a mutated hand that's in the form of a digital camera. I'm equipped at the least. I need help in taking pictures during the afternoon in the streets and around a church(s). I have 7 lens at my disposal, polarized lens cover, sun blocking cone thing,UV protection cover, ect... I probably have enough equipment to take pictures of the sun directly . What mm lenses should I bring? What type of lenses? (ranging from wide,tele,fish, and more standard ones) How should I set my settings? *I probably should just sit outside everday till sunday and figure out ways to prevent over exposure, ect... but - tips,tips,tips* I know very little about photographing people and even less about group photos. I know the very, very basics of exposure. I'm trying to learn manual, but I'll let it side on this event because it's not going to happen again anytime soon. I'm a rather shy photographer and people scare me and people being hateful scare me more. This will be a rough experience no doubt. I believe there will be a few hundred people or just over 100.
