    What gear do you use? What camera? What’s in your 20lbs of camera gear? You might have already said but I just started watching

    Hi Ian. I was wondering if you worry about wild animals while you are out shooting in the mountains, Forrests etc. and what do you do to ensure your safety? Thanks for putting out this live webinar so that we may all learn first hand :)

    Thank you Ian. I’ve learned a lot from you and other photographers associated with OPG. Keep up the good work!

    Where do you focus when trying to get near and far subjects in a photos with ratio of f11 or higher such as the trillium or
    the green leaves and trees

    Please share some about filters. Particularly polarizer on wide angle problems.

    With the new Sony mirrorless cameras coming out with a better and better and more advance features every year would you consider migrating to mirrorless? technology?

    First time joining so please excuse “newbie” question. Best overall outdoor lens for wildlife (birds in particular). I have Canon 7D Mark II.

    Hi there, do you know where I can get a nice logo for my pics that will not break the bank?

    Hi Ian, how do you prepare for, and deal with, different regulations, like where you’re allowed to go in different national parks (such as walking in river streams, going off trail, and such), and knowing whether you need permits at all?

  11. Kathleen

    What aperture did you use on the trillium to get the total photo in focus?

  12. Mari

    When shooting while standing in a river or stream, do you have any recommendations for keeping your camera dry? Do you use any waterproof equipment?

  13. Kathleen

    How did you manage the backlit photo of the rainforest using a digital camera? Is it HDR? Otherwise, the contrast is so great, it must have been difficult to catch the range of light.

    Hi Ian! We get a lot of rain in the spring. Wondering if you have any best practices for capturing landscape shots when there is moderate to heavy rain. Thanks!
