We are going to use the Dutton Island and Tidal View preserves in Atlantic Beach for this outing. Anita Fanic will present and demonstrate in the field some of the various techniques she uses in creating images through intentional camera movement. The goal is to leave the outing with a few images representing the various techniques.
Then as an adjunct to the Outing. There will be a Program at the May 5th JCC meeting for presentation and discussions on processing techniques for ICM images.
Members wishing to discuss or present will have the opportunity to present their images using the ICM techniques from the outing. Final images after post processing can be presented with discussion on techniques used or, RAW files and the individual enhancing steps to final image can be presented.
The overall goal is to have a fun exercise in creating the image in camera with a minimum amount of post processing.

Both wide and long lenses, polarizer or variable ND filters. If you do not have a variable ND filter, Anita will have four with her that can be borrowed. (2-77mm, 1-62mm, 1- 58mm)
You will still be able to shoot without these filters if you are in a low light situation.
Its never too early for bug spray in Florida. Also, depending on rainfall around the time, the trails at Dutton Island can be muddy in sections.
Both preserves are reached off of the west side (southbound) of Mayport Road.
