A WIDE angle lens that is at least 24mm with an aperture of f/2.8 or faster is recommended. I highly recommend the 16-35 F/2.8 (either Canon or Nikon) and/or something in the 24-70mm range. The Sigma lenses have a good reputation as well. If you're not sure what to bring, please ask Amy.
Tripod and ball head and the right plate on the camera to attach it to the tripod - test this before you leave home so you make sure you have all the right parts
Filters if you have them - strongly recommended that you have at least one filter plus the holder to attach it to the lens. If you're not sure what to bring, please ask Amy.
