You don't need to bring a camera to the workshop, and it's not necessary that you are currently using a SLR camera. You will be learning general photo composition and styling techniques and how to use natural window light when shooting your photos.
The small group of attendees of the afternoon session will have the opportunity to work hands-on with the photo styling sets and learning how to style your specific product. You will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with Chelsea and Lisa to get tips on styling and photographing your pieces.
Being familiar with a SLR camera highly recommended for the afternoon session. Please bring your camera and a few products that you sell if you are attending the afternoon portion of the workshop.
