I will visiting Jiu Zhai Gou and HuangLong around 19 or 20 Oct as part of a 8 day tour package with my family. Will like to seek your advices/tips on making the most of taking photos while being there and with existing equipments.
I plan to take the following items other than D700 camera :
a) 28-75mm f2.8 zoom len
b) Ultra wide angle 12-24mm len (cannot afford get 14-24mm Nikon len)
c) 50mm f.14d len
d) 70-200mm zoom len (to use when needed during entire tour)
f) UV, CPL, ND8, GND4 filters
g) SB800 flash (to use when needed during entire tour)
h) Lowepro D100W bag, Safrotto Backpack (to use accordingly)
Understand time will be limited during the tour-1 day in Jiu Zhai Gou; half day in HuangLong.
1) Amongst the various lakes and sights, where should we start first and the recommended lakes/sights route for photo taking? Start early morning with Long Lake ? ==> 5 color pond ==> Nuorilang waterfalls ==> Panda Lake ==> Arrow bamboo lake ==> Rhinoceros Lake ==> Shuzheng waterfall ==> ???
I think during midday noon it may not be good for phototaking, any recommendation what and where can we station instead?
2) Recommendation(s) for any vantage point where we can position to take great landscape photos while being there.
Thank you in advance for whatever valuable references you may chip in.
