This is a hands-on program so attendees must bring a camera with a freshly charged battery, a clean memory card and at least two hotshoe mountable flashes.  The attendee should have a camera that supports remote control internally via a popup flash or have at least two sets of suitable remote controllers, optical or radio based for individual use.  Each attendee should be prepared to be both photographer and subject.
