Photo Tour for DSLR, Mirror-less, and iPhone Photographers

Growing up in southern Indiana, I learned that there was never a more lush time of year than June. The foliage is out, the crops are up, the winter wheat is within 30 days of harvest, and new farm animals are cavorting around the barnyard!

Join Sally Meyer Wolf and me, Rad Drew, on a tour that will take us through Decatur and Ripley Counties to some of the sights that I remember as a kid. We’ll get up close and personal with an historic round barn, photograph an historic stone bridge, visit a working grain elevator, wade country creeks, and visit an historic church and schoolhouse. 

Many of the barns and out buildings on this tour are set in some of the most idyllic scenes you’ll find anywhere in the Midwest.

We will travel caravan-style with Sally and Rad in the lead vehicle. To minimize the number of vehicles in the caravan, we encourage participants to car pool.

Repeat Offender Discount

If you’ve ever been on a photo tour with Rad, or with Rad and Sally, you’re entitled to a 15% discount on any subsequent tour.

What to Bring

June in this part of the country is typically hot and muggy, but a quick storm can cool things off in a hurry. A rain jacket and sweatshirt to stay dry and warm are recommended, as are boots, long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and bug spray.

Bring your usual gear: camera(s), lenses, tripods, filters, iPhones, extra batteries and accessories. Sally and I rarely shoot with anything longer than a 200mm lens, but that's not to say you couldn't, so bring your long lenses if you want to. We’ll be shooting all day with minimal breaks, so pack water and snacks to meet your needs.

Spring is a great time of year to shoot infrared images because the foliage is still coming out and branches show up dark against the white foliage, so bring your infrared camera if you have one!
