    Those two lenses would be bread and butter for this trip. When I was there before, I was shooting DX, and the 17-55mm and[masked]mm were what I ended up using the most.

    Just to answer a few questions about this trip:

    1) I welcome photographers of all levels, especially beginners!

    2) Although my kit is Nikon-based, this isn't a "Nikon" workshop. Most of the techniques I'll cover are brand-neutral.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
