It looks like I'll be participating in a study abroad program with my college for 3 weeks over the winter break in January. We'll be traveling to a bunch of national parks and other sites in the American Southwest. We'll be visiting Nevada, Arizona, Utah and a small part of California. I figure this is a perfect opportunity to really beef up the portfolio. I've never been off the east coast. This is my first big trip and I want to bring back some quality photos Does anyone have any advice on equipment or techniques for what I'll be seeing out there. I'm guessing it will be a lot of landscapes and some journalistic type shots. (I'm not sure if I want to bring a lot of equipment or if I want to bring the digital stuff at all) What type/brands of film would you guys suggest bringing on such a trip? Any other technical and equipment suggestions would be appreciated. sorry for the long post. thanks in advance.
