For landscapes, on my FF, I use either 35mm, or more often, 24mm lenses.

Paul mentioned Navy Pier. That's another great place to get pics at. Make sure to hit that one up.

Several to choose from, Fireboat is one of the best, riding on an old 1930s Chicago FD fireboat through the city on the North Branch of the Chicago River.


I concur on that one. That was an excellent boat tour, really enjoyed it.

Also, time permitting, give a go to Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park - It's up in the northwestern portion of the U.P. and it's gorgeous during fall. Again, lots of fall colors, lots of animals, lots of trails to hike, lots of waterfalls, really a lot of fun.

If you're into lighthouses, besides the National Lakeshore there's a bunch if your basically drive Lake Superior.

Anything along the National Lakeshore is great. Lots of trails to hike. Waterfalls, Lake Superior, Lighthouses, wildlife and fall colors.

If you want to be a better photographer, there are two things you must do above all others: buy a mirrorless camera and use it.

I'd just go mirrorless and never look back.

I agree with Thomas. If the weight of the body and lens together is that problematic then get into the gym and start lifting some weights to build your strength back up to a viable level to handle said gear. Train smart, but progressive. Don't train like an old fart or a girl. You want to get stronger you need to apply more resistance to a given movement over time with proper biomechanics.

I've seen a couple of responses stressing this and I shall do so as well. Make sure the tripod is tall enough for you. I'm 6'4 and need a tall Tripod. Nothing is worse than bending over all day to take your pictures because your Tripod is too short.

That's a lot of camera. I'm not sure I would ever have a need for it??

Tough one Beth, but I think I'd choose No. 2 first and right behind that, No. 1

I have certain stronger interests that I like to take pictures of, but at the end of the day, I simply enjoy taking pictures and I'll take pictures of anything that catches my interest. If the subject matter or the surrounding conditions and environment make the endeavor more difficult, all the better. This helps to broaden my experience base and I feel helps me to become a better photographer.
