Hi All,

I am planning a Camp Muir Day hike, details below:

http://www.nwhikers.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8023993&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

I plan to create a small video of the experience and take lots of pictures along the route.

Any recommendations for photo stops right from Paradise meeting point?

Do i need to take any permit for personal use non commercial photos and videos (i may put it on my youtube account to share with friends)?

--------------
Thank you,
Rommel

You're going to be hiking on very deep snow all the way up, there won't be any specific photo-worthy spots (flowers or streams or waterfalls, for example) that you won't see from any given location on the way up.  Keep in mind that unless it's clear out, you're not likely going to see anything worth photographing at all - if it's cloudy it may be entirely whiteout conditions since Paradise is often socked in with fog when the weather is more moist.

No, you don't need permits for photography.

Unfortulately with all the snow this year you will be going before prime wildflower season, which is a real bummer because that hike can be pretty spectacular in wildflower season.  You might get lucky and get a few good flower shots at the lower part of the hike.  Anyway, you should probably start out at Myrtle Falls which can yield some pretty good pictures with Rainier in the background.  Panorama point has good views, but look back towards the Tatoosh Range as you begin to ascend towards panorama point.  IMO a picture of the Tatoosh range is best taken at lower elevation before you climb too high.  That way the peaks rise up above the horizon with Mt Adams in the background.

When you get up higher in elevation you end up looking down on the range and it doesn't look as good.

That's all I got.  Once you're above panorama point the views are pretty similar.  Look more for intimate landscape shots you might find along the way, but the grand landscape shots will probably be better in the lower portion of the hike.

I would say F11 would be a good stop.    wink.gif

Watch the movie "mile, mile and a half" for a good tutorial on how to cover that trail with a camera.    Excellent movie on so many levels.

@boot up The f11 stop is a really good one. I would set my camera to that and share the pics after the trip.

thanks for the note on "Mile... Mile & a Half", the trailers look really good and i plan to create a small video of our trip although a day hike. I will see this movie on netflix.

Up high,a telephoto can be useful to compress images of other climbers against dramatic bits of scenery such as the icy walls  across the nisqually.
