What to Bring
35mm camera, digital, or any format, as long as camera is capable of manual operation (bring your instruction manual).
Know how to manually change ISO (ASA) dial, shutter speed and f-stop.
Tripod – if you have one, it’s a must for nature photography. Do not purchase one for the workshop without discussing it with us first. We have loaners that you can experiment with. Lots of people waste money on worthless tripods. The single most important piece of equipment for improving your photography is the tripod. Get a good one. It’ll pay for itself.
Gray card – available at any photography shop.
Binoculars – if you have them.
Digital – Bring plenty of storage. If you have a lap top or storage device bring it. If not, bring extra cards. Many participants down load cards in the evening.
Lens – if you have a variety, bring them along.
Extra camera batteries.
A plastic drop cloth on which to kneel.
A good quality circular polarizer.
5 to 7 digital images for discussion, in JPG format.
Please put these digital images on a CD or USB Drive.
And just in case…water bottle, bug spray, extra pair of shoes to get wet, flashlight, rain gear, alarm clock, extra snacks and drinks.
There’s no need to make major purchases before the workshop. Come to our workshop first or at least feel free to call us for advice.
