Rick's List: Route 66 Gear Recos

My friend Glenn Taylor took this awsome shot on his RT 66 trip. I'll be there soon!

My friend Glenn Taylor took this awsome shot on his RT 66 trip. I'll be there soon!

I'm packing up for my road trip next week: 6 Days of Canon 6D Images From Route 66. Stay tuned for posts here on my blog.

Here's the camera gear I'm packing. You'll notice that I am taking a bit of lighting equipment. Why? It's all about light.

Before we get going:
Here's a tip: Before a trip, lay out ALL the gear you plan to take well in advance of your departure date. Envision every possible photo situation and the gear you need to make the shots.
I borrowed the Canon 6D cameras from BorrowLenses.com. These guys are great, and rent just about everything you need to make great pictures. They even sent a "thank you" card (circled in the image below) along with my order. Renting, by the way, is a good technique to see if a camera, lens or accessory is just right for you.
C) Scroll down a bit to see more of Glenn's images.


Okay, here's my gear, and some links if you plan to purchase.
