WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING!

Equipment To Bring (filters are recommended for these workshop)
DSLR Camera 
Required: 

You'll need the full power and creative control of a Digital SLR Camera to get the most out of your experience on this workshop!

Wide Angle Lens 
Required:

It is a good idea to bring a wide angle lens get as much beauty in one shot as you can. 

Tripod 
Required:

A tripod is a must when shooting sunrise and sunset. You will be using longer exposures and you will not be able to handhold the camera. It is also a great tool to use to improve your compositions.

Shutter Release/Remote 
Recommended:

A shutter release allows you to take a photo without touching the camera. This helps ensure a sharp photo and is very important for long exposures in the morning and evening hours.

Extra Batteries 
Required:

It is always a good idea to have a few extra batteries on hand. This area is always beautiful and ever changing and you can go through batteries pretty fast, especially during colder mornings. 

Neutral Density Filters 
Recommended:

Filters are good to have as they help control the light. We almost exclusively use neutral density filters and can assist and answer any questions you may have on them.
