Photoshop is used widely in the course and while you do not need to be an expert, some familiarity (primarily Layer Masking techniques} will make it easier for you. But if you are not that familiar with Photoshop, don’t worry, we have some introductory Photoshop videos that will guide you along the way.
You will need a digital camera with a wide angle lens. For full frame sensor cameras a lens around 16-35 is perfect and if you have a cropped APS sensor camera then a wide angle lens around 10-20 will work as well. If you don’t have lenses in that range but do have a wide angle lens then use it for the course and learn what you need for later purchase. You need a good tripod and a cable release or wireless device to trigger your camera. I also recommend wireless triggers to fire the strobe/flashes.
This course covers lighting extensively and includes several techniques. You will learn how to shoot architecture without lights, with strobes and umbrellas, also with a flash unit.
