    Mount Dora Ladies Photography Retreat – Stuff You Want to Know

    Where will we be staying?

    We stay at a fabulous bed and breakfast right in town.

    The hotel is convenient to our various shooting locations. Our first day begins at 3:30 p.m. at the inn. Check in time is 3 p.m.

    How will we get around?
    You will be expected to provide your own transportation to Mount Dora. If you live in SW Florida, we will be driving the Understand Photography minivan up so you can catch a ride with me.  

    We will walk to most locations.

    What will we be photographing? 
    This Photo Adventure encompasses architecture, cityscapes, street life, lots of nature.

    What skill level is required?
    This photo adventure is geared to photographers of all skill levels. Our proven leader, 5 to 1 photographer/mentor ratio allows every adventurer from beginner to advanced to proceed at her own pace. We start this photo retreat with a basic exposure class – a refresher for some and a beginner class for others.

    What will I learn during the Photo Adventure?
    At every step of your Photo Adventure Peggy will be at your side, sharing her techniques . Our ratio of a maximum of 5 photographers per leader assures that you will receive personal attention and allow you to learn at your own pace. We will cover:

    Which of your camera’s exposure modes is preferred for each shooting condition.Which metering mode works best for each subject.Exposure bracketing for HDR photography. Night photography techniques. Subject isolation. Composition. Filters. Advanced techniques tailored to your level of knowledge.

    What equipment should I bring?
    This Photo Retreat encompasses a wide range of subject matter.
    We suggest:

    DSLR camera or advanced compact.

    Ideally, lenses to provide the equivalent coverage of full frame lenses from 24mm to 300mm or longer. 

    For “crop” DSLRs this means lenses in the range of 17mm to 200mm or longer.

    A circular polarizer if you own one.


    Tripod (lightweight – you have to carry your own equipment)

    Remote shutter release. Useful, but your cameras timer will suffice in a pinch.

    Memory cards, bring them all!

    Batteries, you will need spares.

    Chargers for everything.

    Laptop with Photoshop, Elements or Lightroom installed. A trial version of Photomatix:
