To have the most fun and to get the most out of the workshop:

  1. Please be familiar with all your camera settings. If you have not been shooting lately, take some time to practice before the workshop.
  2. You should know how to shoot in Manual Exposure mode.
  3. If you have a PC laptop, please know where to find pictures and plug-ins. It’s a good idea to test this out before the workshop. Note: We are MAC users. We often, but not always, have PC folks on the workshops who can help you. Please understand that the workshop is a  photography workshop, not computer workshop. :-)
