Do I need a lot of experience or expensive gear to take this workshop?
The answer is no, this is for anyone wanting to learn or learn more. As long as you have a DSLR camera that offers manual shooting, and the drive to learn. You can make great images right away with simple equipment, and that’s what I aim to teach you. If you have photographed before and aim to update yourself on the latest techniques in digital photography, this is definitely for you. If you are just starting out and have a new camera you want to learn, this is for you, too. If you are a seasoned veteran who doesn’t need much help, just wants to go to great locations and have fun with like-minded individuals, well, this is for you, as well! I do have a list of recommended equipment if you are interested in that let me know!
