Equipment suggestions for the workshops;
A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens, (17-35mm range) and a zoom or fixed lens, like a 70-200 or 300mm. We have also had some point and shoot shooters attend as well; so don’t feel you have buy that latest and greatest. There’s a lot to learn just by seeing things. We also touch on working on your images in the computer during our afternoon class sessions. My main philosophy in teaching these workshops is teaching the camera basics in manual mode, like shutter speed and aperture, so you can control what the final image looks like instead of the camera. Most importantly I will attempt to teach you the art of “learning to see”. It really helps with compositions. I’ll convince you of all the advantages of shooting digital images in the RAW format. You will be amazed at how much better your images will look after a weekend! I’ve had a great track record of past students who have made significant strides in their photography skills.
