A brief word about cameras:

There is no particular type of camera needed for these courses. Enthusiasm and a love of pictures is far more important. That said, you may find that basic point and shoot cameras (including camera phones) have certain limitations, particularly in their ability to photograph close-up details and in their focusing options. For this reason I would recommend a DSLR, CSC, bridge camera or advanced compact with macro setting for garden and flower photography if at all possible. Don’t worry too much though – if you only have a simple camera you will still have a fantastic day as long as you accept the camera’s limitations and focus instead on mastering light, colour and composition.
