My best advice is wait till after we meet on the first day before going out to get your supplies. I have plenty of suggestions for getting the materials inexpensively. in the mean time read about the two types of camera you'll need and if you don't have one or the other or both then start asking friends and family to see if they might have one you can borrow for the semester. Supply List Mandatory: -35mm SLR (single lens reflex) or rangefinder camera with manual over ride and a light meter. If you're not sure what to get what till class starts, you won't need it right away. I can help you find a used one and they're not too expensive. You're best bet is to ask around to see if a friend or relative has one they can loan you for the semester. Digital Camera: SLR is the best but very expensive, point and shoot digital camera is less expensive, a cell phone camera could work as well for the assignments (in other words use what you have but if you feel compelled to then go out and buy a digital slr or a smaller digital camera with manual controls). Again, if in doubt wait till we meet before deciding what to get, I'll be more than happy to help you pick a camera. You won't need a camera the first week of classes.
