Hybrid Class Requirements

Computer with Photoshop C6 or CC and Lightroom 4 or 5 loaded and ready to go. Trial version is fine as long as you are still in the 30 day window. You should also have at least 10 gigs of free space on your internal hard drive. DSLR or DSLM that will shoot stills and video. We will have a few Panasonic Lumix cameras if your camera will not shoot video. Be sure to bring your CF/SD cards and a card reader. If you have a tripod, bring it, and don't forget the mounting plate. A monopod will work, but tripod is better.

If you have rig, slide, bracket, brace, mic or any other peripheral “stuff”, feel free to bring it along. One of the class assignments is to shoot a “Talking Business Card”. We will be using classmates for this project, so if you like, bring a “professional” change of clothes from the waist up. We will have a small studio set and weather permitting will shoot outside.
