What should you bring?

This is a solid day of education. Be comfortable and dress according to the weather and class location. I suggest you water and a snack, (there may not be facilities for buying food). For the course you should bring the following-
  • Camera.
  • Camera Instruction Manual.
  • Charged battery (or two).
  • Memory card/s (preferably empty).
  • Lens/s.
  • Flash. If you don’t have an external flash don’t buy one until AFTER the course.
  • Note taking materials.
  • Tripod if you have (or can borrow) one. If you don’t have a tripod don’t buy one until AFTER the course, as I will show you what features I recommend.
