DSLR/Mirrorless Camera

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




A shutter release allows you to take photos without touching the camera. This helps ensure sharp photographs during longer exposures.



It is a good idea to bring a wide angle lens get as much beauty in one shot as you can. As well as a telephoto lens for long-lens landscapes.



It is always a good idea to have a few extra batteries on hand. Batteries die faster when using LiveView and in colder temps during the morning.



A tripod is a must when shooting sunrise/sunset and night photography. You will be using longer exposures and you will not be able to handhold the camera.



ND Filters and Graduated ND Filters are good to have as they help control the light in camera. Dani can assist with any questions you may have.
