Also remember to order you meters and your flash if you do not already have one.

Again, you can borrow what you need or look on with someone.

Arlington Camera is the official supplier to Texas School, and you can trust that you are getting a great price.

Please use this link to pre-order any gear you would like to have delivered in time for class.
Why Should You Pre-Order?

  1. You don't want to be leaving class to buy a meter or flash because you will miss my teaching on how to use them.
  2. There are 800 other people at Texas School buying gear. You don't want to go to the trade show only to find out they have sold out.
Assignment #7: The Final Lesson Before Class

If you have not started your homework studies, please get on it because you will get behind and get overwhelmed.

Lesson 7 is ready for you: Lesson 7: ISOs | Pass the CPP

In case you missed it, here are the links to previous lessons:

Remember, take your time and really learn the material.

Here is an updated list of things to bring:

  • Get your two all-time favorite images printed into 8×10.
  • Pack of 3×5 notecards.
  • Bring a sweater or a jacket and know that the room will be cold. When we head outside, it may be 95° and 100% humidity, so be prepared to peel off layers.
  • Camera
  • Lens (28 – 105mm ranges lens is great. Don’t feel like you have to bring every lens you own
  • Flash
  • Meter
  • Note pad and pens – You can bring a laptop, but it is not required and don’t expect to be able to plug it in. We will not be doing any image editing in class. 
  • Pajamas – yup, there is a Pajama party on Tuesday, and I am counting on all of you to participate
  • If you want to bring some images for me to critique, please gather them all in one place for me to review. For example, put them all in one folder on your computer or tablet or a flash drive so we don't have to search for images.
  • Batteries for your flash, meter and camera – fully charged

I will be sending you a complete list of things to bring a little bit closer to class.
That’s it for now!
