Photo Spot Gear and Time Recommendations

A few days ago we rolled out another new feature on the site that will make your guides more useful to photographers visiting new locations for the first time: Now you can optionally add recommendations to each photo spot for what gear to bring and when in the day to go to catch the best light.

There are still open text fields to title the spot and leave any tips or advice, but now with these new toggle buttons it's as simple as clicking a few buttons and you're done. No typing required to leave useful recommendations.

Adding gear and time recommendations is a few clicks.

When a photographer views the spots in your guide, they'll see the gear and time recommendations you made in the spot "Details" section, below your "Getting the shot" advice (you did leave advice, didn't you?).
At the Palace of Fine Arts (from my "Left My Heart in San Francisco" guide), I recommend bringing a wide angle lens and tripod, and to check it out at night.

So what are you waiting for? Add in gear and time recommendations to your guides today! And if you have other feature requests, don't hesitate to ask!
