    Let me answer on behalf of Peterpan.

    It is a big group. start early gathering is to allow more time for people who may be late. If you can reach woodland mrt by 8am it should be fine.

    AP is an open park. It gets hotter when it reaches 9plus or 10am and later. I usually wear bermuda and T shirts and sports shoe, have a water bottle to keep cool.
    Insect repellent not needed. A cap or hat to protect your hair/head is optional.
    I always keep a towel to wipe the sweats

    Be prepared to You will know what I mean if you look at Peterpan face 2 hours after we start shooting

    What is the diameter of your lens? I have an extra Raynox DCR-250 macro convertor which can be clip on the front of any lens if the diameter is between 52mm to 67mm.

    The 50mm lens + Raynox DCR-250 would be good.
