EQUIPMENT RECOMMENDATIONS

See our Gear Guides

We highly recommend that you bring a DLSR (or Mirrorless!) camera which allows for manual settings of Aperture, Exposure duration and ISO. The camera should support interchangeable lenses. FAST (F2.8 or faster) and WIDE (20MM or wider, 14MM is preferable) are best for landscape photography (lenses can be rented on-line). We will use a combination of wide and long lenses. You will also need a tripod. Optionally, you can bring a laptop for processing your images in Lightroom Classic CC.
