Horry-Georgetown Technical College – Suggested Equipment

Horry-Georgetown Technical College Continuing Education Photography Class

Instructor: Jeremy Smith

Hello Photographers… below you will find my recommendations for both the beginner and advanced classes at Tech. In short, you need three things to take the class. 1) A camera body. 2) A lens. 3) A flash.

I noted two levels: basic and advanced. Both will work for you and both will be perfect for the class. Keep in mind that if you ever progress to become a pro photographer – that you will need back up equipment anyway. So if you started the class with basic equipment – you are not wasting money.

The “basic” equipment can be used by professionals… and you can always upgrade to the advanced equipment later on and use the basic as a back up. Or – you can just start out and buy the advanced equipment.

And keep in mind, you can still take the class with other gear not listed below… it just that I highly recommend these and because I’m familiar with it an it makes it easier to learn on.

There are  two ways to go – Canon path or Nikon path. Either one will work just fine. And remember – it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.  Body,  Lens, Flash  –  Jeremy Smith
