Thread: NEF Howe Caverns field trip?

    NEF Howe Caverns field trip?

    Who's up for a field trip to Howe Caverns?

    http://www.howecaverns.com/

    I spoke with the good folks there and photography is allowed as long as you don't bring any light stands or monopods/tripods. It's a balmy 52 degrees underground . Please check out the site above and let me know what you think .

    there are some definate photo ops... maybe not as much as you would think... it takes a bit of lighting to get some of the shots... but then again its not terrible either... so you should be ok with even an on-camera flash for some of the shots you will encounter...

    I went this summer....and I don't use a flash I prefer low-light photography in general though. Now that I have the 100mm lens, I might use the flash for some macro shots - but only very sparingly. I love the colored lights they use already.

    It's definitely fun, and you'll find some photo ops! It is much more expensive now than I remember it being before though. They were also talking about opening up more sections of the cave that had been previously not open to the public. That sounds interesting for sure!

    I've never been, but my kids have. If the trip is before I move, then I might be able to squeeze it in.
