Recommended Equipment

     In addition to your properly functioning film/digital camera we recommend the following equipment: a dedicated or built in flash, extra set of fully charged batteries, lens cloth and gear bag. We are not in equipment sales and it is not necessary for you to go out and purchase additional equipment for the workshop. Wear clothing appropriate for the season, comfortable shoes for the field outings and since some Mississippians are convinced that the state bird should be the Mississippi mosquito you may want to carry along some insect protection. And for those of you that eat more than once a day a sack lunch. If you have been considering  new camera equipment purchases feel free to send us an email with your questions.

     We will provide: Drinks, bottled water, and all workshop materials. For those of you shooting digital we will have a lap top in the field for image review and instant feedback.
