What more Oye?

There is no prerequisite other than interest in the art & science of photography. You need to get your Camera and Lens or a prosumer point and shoot camera. If you can bring some pictures you have shot, on a pen drive or CD that would be very helpful for you. DSLR Camera users will benefit the most out of the workshop while Consumer Digital Camera users can attend the workshops as well. Bringing a camera is not mandatory; it is prudent to have one to relate to the topics in question. If you don't have a camera, Toehold will try and arrange one for you.
