What equipment will you need
|Camera||You can use any camera you have, but cameras with manual settings are recommended. If you are unsure please contact us via email. Also, don’t forget to charge your batteries before attending and bring a memory card for the camera.|
|Tripod||You will need a tripod to participate in the twilight shoot. Any tripod will suffice, but a tripod with a 3 way head is recommended.|
|Remote Trigger (optional)||This is not absolutely necessary, but they are highly recommended as they allow you to trigger the camera without shaking it.|
|Camera spirit level (Optional)||3 axis spirit level that sits in the hot shoe of the camera. You don’t need one, but if you want to get level or perspective correct images this item is recommended. You can find them on ebay for around $5 or from your local camera store for $50! Here’s an example. (New model cameras may have electronic versions of this built in)|
