Equipment for this workshop

What to bring:

  • Your camera, fully charged battery and spare battery if you have one.

  • Remote Release Cable to take shots without touching the camera.

  • Any lenses are suitable but if you have a macro and and or zoom then bring those as it gives you a better chance to work on close-ups

  • Tripod (preferable) I can hire you one for the session at the cost of £10 but let me know in advance if you want one.

  • A polarising filter is useful for removing glare and reflections but not essential

  • Sensible footwear – it can sometimes be muddy and sticky underfoot so walking boots or trainers with good grip are recommended.

  • A large sandwich bag and an elastic band to wrap around your camera and lens if we have light rain

  • A kneeling mat or dustbin liner to put on the ground if you want to kneel or crouch down for ground level shots

  • Water, snacks or whatever you need for the event duration

  • Raincoats or equivalent – we might catch a shower!
