Q: What if my camera isn’t a whizz-bang brand / the latest model DSLR?
A: It doesn’t matter. While a Digital SLR will open your creative options up more than a simple point-and-shoot camera, there is still much to learn about the art of taking a great photo. A lot of people like to come and learn the basics prior to upgrading or maybe are being pressured to learn how to use the new toy.
Q: What if I don’t have a DSLR or point-and-shoot camera?
A: We like to encourage all types of photography, no matter how the photos are taken as we understand people have access to a camera almost all the time in their back pockets from their phones. Don’t let that stop you from the amazing potential of Learning, Exploring, Networking, Shooting, Editing or Sharing!
