After the discussion portion, we’ll have a hands-on practice session taking photos of a beautifully styled home.
Tammy will share a lot of valuable information. There is a very active REP community and Tammy will introduce you to various paths for getting involved and learning more.
Any camera will do, but for best results we recommend a digital SLR camera or a mirrorless camera with manual exposure controls with a wide-angle lens (10-20mm for digital DX SLR's, 12-24 mm for full frame/FX SLR's), a circular polarizer filter, an external flash unit if you have one, and a sturdy tripod with adjustable head.
It's recommended that you have knowledge of exposure basics and can adjust the exposure settings with your camera. If not, consider taking the Photo Basics - Getting Off Auto class first.
