SUGGESTION: If you have something you would like to photograph or experiment with for your product/still life set-up, please bring it with you and we can help you get the shots. Items such as backdrops, flowers, bottles, food items, etc., all make a great still life shot.
What You Need to bring...
- Camera gear and accessories
You will need a camera you are able to control the aperture, shutter speeds and ISO (sensitivity). It does not need to be an SLR however. Additionally please bring...
- All your lenses – but if you do own a dedicated macro lens (50mm, 100mm or whatever) then that's ideal
- A reasonable capacity memory card, such as 8GB – or higher – compatible with your camera
- A sturdy tripod is recommended
- A flashgun – or any off camera lighting equipment if you have it. These are not essential, especially if you bring a tripod!
- Your laptop with a minimum RAM of 4GB. 8GB or higher will offer faster performance, however.
If you do not have Lightroom or Photoshop installed on your PC, we suggest you download a free 30-day trial directly from Adobe a few days before the start date which will be fully functional for the workshop. A basic knowledge of any one of these programs is recommended for this workshop, but not essential.
