Southwest of Orlando, but I travel from Jacksonville to Miami for work fairly often.

Feel free to post you favorite locations to go shooting, I will probably be passing by at some point soon!

In my neck of the woods I like to visit Lake Louisa State Park and Hillsboro River State Park. Recent trips have given me the chance to stop by Cape Florida Light, South Beach at Night, Butterfly World, St. Augustine Light House and Ponce Inlet Light ... all recommended if you are in the appropriate area.

Brad

A Florida get-together sounds great to me, but maybe we should wait a few months. Given the fun we had last year with visitors like Katrina, Rita and Wilma, I think it might be better to plan an event sometime after the storm season.

Any good photo location works for me. Pick a spot and I will try to be there!

jj1987
16th of June 2006 (Fri), 08:48
Yes, at any time a storm strikes I could be sent away for work to do video of the damage and hurricanes. I get to stay in safe spots, but I would still have to make the trip.

If I was going to go very far, sanibel island might be my choice. A guided (private) tour of mariana caverns would be nice also, so we could get some long exposures. Paynes Prarie or itchtuknee around here would be the best.

The keys are just tooo far.

I agree that the fall may be the best time for the first time. This gives us ample opportunity to try and choose a location somewhat centralized.

Ok here are a couple of ideas to start things off.

Everglades National Park (yeah...I know that's south)

Merrit Island Preserve (yeah....I know thats north. Maybe we can get some good group access?)

Ding Darling onSanibel Island (yeah...... I know thats west)

Richard_Miami
26th of June 2006 (Mon), 12:12
October is still a bit early for Everglades Natl Park... still more mosquitoes than gators. Dec - Jan - Feb is prime.

Sanibel makes a lot of sense to me. As discussed above, we just have to watch the storms, or wait until later in the year.

I live near Daytona Beach, well in the middle of daytona and Orlando. The Ponce inlet lighthouse is always a nice place to go and take pics. it's more a beach scene around that area though. some of the jetties are nice too. there are a lot of springs in FL. I went to silver glen springs (not silver springs) the other day and if I had a better camera I would have loved to take some pics.

Just joined the Canon camp a couple weeks ago (a D30 found me at a thrift shop) and asked in another thread if any other SoFloridians might be interested in meeting...and was directed here...nice to see there's a crowd...I'm in West Palm...so if you folks haven't met and would like to, count me in...

Have now read all the postings...we seem to have a lot in the 'hood...don't know if anyone has attended the fotofusion in Delray Beach in Januarys but it's a week of classes (expensive) and cheap 'community events' i.e. $5 workshops for those of us who'd rather spend $300 on a lens...I've attended a few of the "freebies" over the years, when I knew absoLUTEly nothing, and it was helpful...the new brochure is now on-line (despite the message that the one there is last year's...) you can also have them mail you one......MY BAD...the cover is 07, the info is 06!

maybe we could meet there for one of them...it'd be nice to meet ya...

Hi Floridian POTNers, I'll be looking for some shooting in and around downtown Orlando sometime over the 19th to 22nd dec. Just wondering if any of you locals would care to join me and show me the sights...in any case me and the wife will be wandering around. Since you've been looking for an excuse to meet up, perhaps we might even schedule a POTN gathering around the occasion, who knows? :)

Well, the skyline in Orlando sucks / isn't really a skyline. The best place to capture it is by Lake Eola (the big lake downtown), or on a large parking garage such as the Florida Hosptial garage.

Are those the only dates available? I might be able to do it on the 19th or 20th depending on time arriving and where you're staying while you're here.

Hi, my name is Bonny and I'm directly behind the Magic Kingdom on Reams Road. The majority of my photography get's done there. I just got my first DSLR (S2 IS) and am so excited. My husband works dor Disney. My daughter MJ is almost 6, adopted at birth and is medically fragile and developmentally delayed (you can read about her in the link in my signature if you like) I was diagnosed with arthritis, sjogren's syndrome and fibromyalgia when she was 8.5 months old. She and I both have some limited mobility and use wheelchairs for any real distance. I would be excited to meet others, I don't know a lot of ppl here in FL (been here, orlando, less than a year and in FL less than 3)

I am brand new to photography. I had a small sony cybershot and out of the blue someone sent me this beautiful S2 IS. I took about 400 pics this weekend and am eagrly reading boards and waiting for books from the library to learn more.

Okay, enough jabbering from me.....

I would not go so far as to say the skyline in Orlando sucks. It is not NYC or Seattle or SF - but with a little motivation - there can be some decent images - IMHO. Art - and others - are you still planning a meet for around the 20th?? I will check back now that I know it might be a plan. If you are staying in Maitland - there is a place called Crane's Roost Park - you can googlemap or PM me for directions - that might be nice. Some Christmas decorations - wildlife - decent sunrise. Not sure what you like to shoot - I like sunrise/nature/wildlife/opportunity shooting - still a rookie!! Anyway - let me know about the 20th -- sounds like fun!!

Perhaps you can suggest a photogenic meeting spot where we can take pictures while waiting for whoever will show up to show up?

NetDep
17th of December 2006 (Sun), 15:44
@art...
Thanks for the kind words!! Most of the birds - other than the eagles from Alaska - were taken at Lake Adair, Concord Lake or Dudley Park - both lakes are within a block of one another and the Park is the park around Concord. From Maitland - would be easy to take Forest City Road (434) to Edgewater and go south til just past the College Park area -- the lakes/park are obvious -- and quite nice and safe (minimal street encounters) -- also a nice Starbuck's on the way on Edgewater Drive. Early in the morning - I would suggest the Starbuck's on Edgewater Drive. Not sure if I can make it - was not paying attention that it was a weekday - but will if I can get coverage. Please keep me advised on progress. Lots of birds - great sunrises - and a nice walk - look for sunrise about 0645 to be there for good light - Starbuck's opens at 0600. Thanks!!

arthurgoh
18th of December 2006 (Mon), 14:34
Thanks for the suggestions Netdep! I'll definitely want to check out the Edgewater area you mentioned.

Hi All, it's been a long time since I've posted here.

Like NetDep, I also live in Clermont. Bird photography is my favorite with Macro a close second. With all the surrounding lakes I get plenty of shots. One of my favorite photography spots in Central Florida is Harry P. Lue Gardens (http://www.leugardens.org/). They have an incredible variety of plants and flowers and the scenery is beautiful. Another place I like to visit is Lake Morton in Lakeland. Depending on the time of the year you will find egrets, herons, numerous varieties of ducks, geese,swans, and an occasional roseate spoonbill.

This is a great thread - hope to meet some of you one day!

Well I went to fotofusion to see what the reps had...and they really did come unprepared...didn't even have a 50 F1.4...oh they did have the 1.2..."we thought people would want to see the exotics..." the rep said...

and they had but one body of each model (with vert. grips on them) for the crowd to look at so it was pretty useless..as for the 1.2...not very useful for general use...the outsized build would make it less steadily held than a 1.4 (a half-stop) so it is most useful for tripod shots in very low light situations...

when a 80+ yr old lady asked the rep to show her how to use her p/s cam the rep sarcastically replied, "Haven't you read the manual..." I wanted to
slap her wise a$$..."

The photojournalism slideshow presentation I saw was pretty good tho...

The photomarathon actually sounds like it might be a lot of fun - and a challenge - especially for someone not all that familiar with the area! If anyone from the Orlando/Central Florida area is thinking about going --- maybe carpool or team might be fun??? Just some thoughts -- takers?? Post here or e-mail/pm me....Thanks!! Tim and thanks to 300D Plus for posting this - I never would have found it....

I don't think I'll attend the seminars mentioned above, but I'd be interested in a day shooting at the airport or local wildlife area. I'm new to the area so I don't have any knowledge of what's out there.

Fort Walton Beach, Florida, we should get a good photo meet together. I would love to meet and learn from you guys! I live on the panhandle so it would take HOURS to get into central or even south florida. So anyone know a great spot more towards the north-central area we could all meet?

I would but I'm going to St. Augustine this weekend sorry. What about...nvm. I'm busy next weekend. There's this lake in Lakeland (go figure) great place to shoot for birds and gators. Nicknamed Gator Lake, um can't think of the name but it's near Southeastern Uni....Lake Hancock i believe. Between Orlando and Tampa so ya can't beat that.

Ocala. There are a few things around here. Silver Springs, Rainbow Springs and several Equestrian events during the year, if you like horses. It is a beautiful area.

Hey, I'm game also, but why don't we at least get a list of favorite places to shoot in our local areas, then maybe we can decide to set something up to meet at one of those places.

As for me, the local wetlands, and edge of the Glades are my favorites for birding. Also the beach front (Broward County and north), although haven't done much of that lately.

Billy, what's your favorite place to shoot down in the keys? (don't know if you remember me, but I'm the guy who sold you the 400mm :))

Regards

I sure do remember, and its a fantastic lens, and i still love it. Here in the keys, well theres stuff to shoot everywhere, but you really have to go by boat to get the best stuff, a large group would probably be much better served on the mainland.

Yeah, could always go one an airboat over the glades. Although i've been close enought o gators lately...i think i'll suffice from a closer encounter.
