“Is this a digital or film course?”
It is a photography course – about creating better pictures. The emphasis is on your skills behind the camera and your ability to effectively use the camera you have. Digital cameras will make in-the-field critique easier. Film shooters are very welcome. We recommend that you bring an SLR camera with a macro lens. A tripod is not mandatory but recommended.
