Students will require access to a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera system with options for full manual control and capable of shooting in a RAW format. The minimum lens specification for the camera is 24105mm or 2470mm (or the equivalent focal length for a non-full-frame format). The maximum aperture of the lens must be at least f4, however, f2.8 is preferable.
Students also require access to a studio lighting kit. The minimum standard is 2x flash heads, 2x soft boxes, 2x light stands and 1x trigger/sync chord). Also essential for studio lighting is handheld light meter capable of reading flash and ambient light in both incident and reflected modes. (e.g. Sekonic L308s). This is essential for using studio lighting equipment, and highly recommended for accurate light metering in all other aspects of photography.
Other resources and requirements for all cohorts will be detailed and advised through the interact site in the session of offering and on your course-site. These requirements will be reviewed and updated annually.
