What Computer Gear should I Have?

Everyone should have a laptop computer (either Windows or Mac) with some photo editing software such as Lightroom, Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I highly recommend Photo Mechanic (or Photo Mechanic Plus) for editing your shoots. We will have a site license for Photo Mechanic so that those of you who do not already own the program can try it out. It is by far the fastest way to edit and organize your work. You should have memory cards, a card reader, and a USB flash drive. It is also a good idea to bring an external hard drive if you have one, as you will probably end up with more images than your laptop can hold. While this is a shooting workshop and not a workflow event, you will need to download and edit your images on a daily basis. Everyone will have the opportunity to turn in selected images on their USB drive for a daily morning anonymous review and critique. The very best images will be showcased on the workshop website and Facebook page.
