Gain Valuable Insights: Tammy will share a wealth of valuable information and introduce you to the thriving Real Estate Photography community. Explore various pathways for further involvement and continued learning in this field.

Recommended Equipment: While any camera will suffice, we recommend a digital SLR camera or a mirrorless camera with manual exposure controls and a wide-angle lens (10-20mm for digital DX SLRs, 12-24mm for full frame/FX SLRs). Enhance your gear with a circular polarizer filter, an external flash unit (if available), and a sturdy tripod with an adjustable head.

Prerequisites: It's recommended to have basic knowledge of exposure principles and the ability to adjust exposure settings on your camera. If you need to brush up on these skills, consider taking our Photo Basics - Getting Off Auto class before joining this course.
