RSVPs are required for this event.

The session starts in front of Camera Obscura on Ocean Ave. I am not affiliated with Camera Obscura, so please do not disturb them. We will be on the move so make sure to be on time. There are public garages nearby that are free for 90 minutes and $2 for the next 30 (Parking Structure 6 is the closest). I wrote an LA Beginner Photography Workshop e-Book that will be sent out to participants after the session.

What you need:
-A DIGITAL CAMERA with LENS (DSLR, Mirrorless, etc.)
-Camera must have aperture, shutter and manual modes (ask me if you're not sure)
-A MEMORY CARD (with space on it) and a CHARGED BATTERY in your camera!
-Comfortable shoes (we will be walking)
-An Instagram profile
-After registering, monitor your email or the Meetup app for additional details or updates
