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 24-70mm (18-55mm 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 leassons, but if you want to have time to donwload and work on your shoots its a good idea to bring your laptop.
