Last year's foliage was terrible
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

No doubt. But we've had an incredibly rainy last few weeks here, which indicates a wonderful foliage season.

[Update: this trip is now sold out and waitlist only.]

Iceland photography trip happening in May. We depart Sunday 5/12, arrive 5/13. Head to the north of Iceland, spend 4 days photographing the amazing waterfalls, landscapes, and thermal features. Take a scenic flight for aerial photography (regularly scheduled commercial flight in a low-flying Twin Otter, so not a dedicated "sightseeing" flight - 3 legs, approx. 2 hours in the air). Return Friday the 17th.

This is strictly geared toward photographers, which means crazy hours, long drives, and spending hours at a single location. If you're into photography, this is absolute heaven. However if you aren't, you will be completely bored and this trip is not for you 😄.

Food will be catered by Shua from L'orchidee Catering who did our Antarctica trip. He will be coming along and will be responsible for all the weight we'll be gaining.

Cost is $2000 and includes all food, lodging (we have our own house in the Icelandic countryside), transport, fees, etc -  everything but the flights to and from Iceland (the scenic flight IS included).

Maximum 5 people, and most spots are already gone. Ask here or PM me if you're interested!

(Note regarding the hechsher: Shua's establishment is under the MK (Montreal Kosher), but they require us to state that as soon as anything leaves his premises they are no longer responsible, and that Shua's participation on this trip is not as their representative.)

Sounds awesome but can't go. When are you going to do a NY area one day excursion next?

What about beginner photographers? (Have an SLR know a few basics but not much etc..)

This is suitable for all levels of photographers, provided you are really interested in photography and want to dedicate a trip to it.

That being said, this particular trip is sold out already. There will be more in the future posted here.

Is this the right thread to ask photo questions? When scanning a picture does it matter to save it to a jpeg or tiff?

I think that's the appropriate thread. I don't have an answer for you
