There are plenty of places you can be photographed along the Deschutes River. I love locations that have rocks and fences. These elements help me to pose people naturally.
Pros: Easy to get to. Great for kids of all ages. Easy to bring pets.
Cons: Lot’s of people around that can get in the way.
Props to bring: Dogs, signs.
Colors to avoid wearing: Dark green (you don’t want to blend into the water and trees in the background).
