I will be traveling to Jamaica next week and will be there about one week. The first three days I will be in Negril in the western tip of the island and I will be spending about four days in Ocho Rios in the north central part of the island. I know that there are many waterfalls and great beaches to photograph, but could use some ideas and tips for photography. I will be renting a car and I know that will be an adventure in itself as they drive on the opposite side of the road to what I am accustomed.
I have heard various things about the safety of travel on the island and I am generally not too worried about that, but would love to hear of your experiences in Jamaica.
My plan is to take medium format (Pentax 645) and leave the 4x5 at home. I haven't flown in several years, but think that I can still take my Lowepro Photo Trekker on the plane with out much problem.
Any tips or info that anyone can give would be appreciated.
