Equipment Required for our Posing for Families and Children Class

  • a DSLR or mirror-less camera with video capability
  • A couple of lens to choose from. If you're using a gimbal, a lens that is light weight and wide angle is perfect (I use a 28mm). If using a tripod or monopod, a zoom lens is nice to be able to get closer to subject / add variety is nice.
  • Memory cards with a write speed of 95MB/S or more. (Sandisk Extreme Pro or equivalent is recommended)
  • Laptop computer (ideally one that is fast and has a lot of memory space on it- if it handles photoshop well, it should handle final cut pro well).
  • A tripod that has a smooth swivel for video or a monopod (don't need if you bring a gimbal)
  • Additional items reccomended but not required

    • External hard drive for working on video footage
    • Rent/borrow a gimbal for the day (Vistek)
