Snow at Duke Farms

Let's get out and enjoy this snow by heading over to Duke Farms in Hillsborough. There are plenty of scenes there and lots to shoot. Put on some warm layers and come on out. The main part is open until 4:30 p.m. in the winter but there are plenty of open fields to shoot afterward. If you aren't getting good snow pictures, Loren will show you how to do it.

    It was great seeing so many hardy photographers, I didn't expect so many.

    Debi, are you committed to Canon or Nikon? I have a canon 40mm (pancake) and a sigma 30 mm for Canon for sale. This is equivalent of a 48mm on a full frame 35. Can give tips on Canon if you're leaning that way.

      I'm most likely going to go with the 70D. Would love the Mark lll but my pocket can't handle it. I appreciate ur offer to help with "tips" because I will sure need all the help I can get. Digital is a whole new world as compared to film. Haven't held a real camera in my hand in a long long time. Looking forward to getting back into it

      Turns out I couldn't have come anyway. My house decided to spring leaks. Ice jams. We got slammed up here on the mountain. As far as the though love goes. My skin is pretty thick. I can take it. I can give it too.

    Guys, is there a indoor place at Duke farms? My wife wants to accompany me but certainly not for taking pictures.

    February 16, 2014

    • Robin

      The orientation center should be open and there's a little café where she could sit. I would recommend she bring a book or something to do while we're out shooting. We'll most likely be meandering throughout the vast grounds.

      February 16, 2014

    • Ankur T.

      Great..Thanks Robin.

    I visited there before. But it would interesting with all the snow we had. And Loren would be excellent mentor. This would be good.

    let me be the 1st one to say Thank You Loren for setting this photo shoot up. Like I said before, I drove past this place a zillion time and was always meaning to go there. Now after looking at their website I wonder why I didn't do it sooner. So Thank You once again
    And to the group, charge your batteries, check your white balance, dress warm and let's shoot some great pictures. see ya all there
