We are in FL now, til April. Not down in the Keys. This year, we are in Bradenton, Sarasota area. All new to us, we will have plenty of time to explore for new places to shoot. I need a kick start. Any ideas where to shoot Nature, Landscapes, Sunsets, etc? I hear that the Myaaka Preserve is cool. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ron is your best bet for resident expert opinion on where to shoot.  I don't know how close you are to these two places, but I always hear they are amazing... I have personal experience with the 2nd one on the list, been there, you will not be disappointed!

 

• Venice Rookery
• Gatorland

- call them, they used to let photographers in early.... best place on the planet for bird images while they are nesting!

 

If Ron sees this post, I recommend chatting with him, he is your best source!

If you dive or snorkel, you can grab yourself a disposable underwater camera, rent some snorkeling gear and find a place where you can swim with the manatees.  If you're near Crystal River, they're really prevalent in the canals there this time of year.  It's seasonal - when the gulf warms up, they head back out to open sea.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
