Also bring extra batteries, a charger and your laptop to download your images for review & positive criticism. All participants must be able to download and backup you work since each day will be very intense and the instructors won’t have the time for that. I also encourage you to bring a backup system to save your day’s work or in the event that your memory cards fills up. It could be done in your laptop, DVD, a small external HD or flash drives. I can give you tips as to the best external HD to get.

There won’t be any spare computers to be used, so please bring your laptops with you and PLEASE be very familiar with all your personal equipment.
