    Hello. I will be heading off to a youth retreat in the coming month and would like some advice.

    1) Rain or shine.
    I want to take photos in the rain and in the sun. Do you have any suggestions on keeping my Canon XS dry? I will also have my point and shoot with me.

    2) Lighting
    I will be working with dark and bright situations. Will it be worth getting a wireless trigger for my 430EX II?

    3) Snap shot.
    Most shots will be sper of the moment shots. What can i do to keep my shoot time down.

    4) Camerafobe
    Most of my subjects (age 10-14) are camerafobes and try to avoid any camera. Anything i can to to calm them?

    Any thing you want to say or advice you want to give is welcome.

    Something I learned last week is that those FedEx envelopes that are kind of papery/rubbery are very good at covering your camera when it's raining out. If I hadn't seen someone do that and still take photo's with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it
