What Do I Need to Know to Take This Workshop?

If you are just starting out, we do recommend you have a basic understanding of your camera’s operation.  An understanding of basic exposure theory (shutter speed, aperture and ISO) is also suggested. If you don’t feel super comfortable with those concepts, don’t worry, that’s what a workshop is for, to teach you the skills you need to create the images you want!  

What Equipment Do I Need?

Your camera, lenses, extra batteries and memory cards.

Feel free to bring your own portable lighting equipment.  However, since our focus is on natural light, this isn’t required.  We have portable strobes, modifiers, light stands, and more that will be available during the workshop.
