WHAT TO BRING


A dSLR or mirrorless camera : The criteria for the kind of work we’ll be doing is a camera that can be operated completely manually to ensure we get the best exposure with interchangeable lenses allowing us to cover a range of focal lengths


Tripod: We’ll often be shooting in low light so a tripod is an absolutely essential piece of equipment.


A cable release: This allows us to trip the camera shutter without touching the camera, which can cause movement blur during longer exposures.


A wide angle lens :For some of the locations a wide angle lens really is essential if you want to get those epic landscapes and street shoots.


A telephoto lens : A telephoto also compresses the landscape and is great for shooting misty scenes.


A mid-range zoom lens :there may be a couple of occasions when the zooms listed above are too wide or too long, and a mid-range zoom in the 24-70 mm (18-55 mm on a crop sensor) is perfect.


Comfortable waterproof walking boots :While we won’t be doing any long hikes we’ll certainly be doing some walking over uneven ground.


Windproof jacket and warm top : t’s a little chilly early in the morning before the sun has come up, so a windproof and waterproof outer shell jacket over a warm top will help keep you comfortable.


Laptop : workshop does not cover post processing lessons, but if you want to have time to download and work on your shoots its a good idea to bring your laptop.
