More Than 20 DSLR’s to Loan for the Day and More Than 8 Full Hours of Instruction for the Day
At our Ravenswood location, Chicago Photography Classes (all-day free parking) offers a one-day Digital Boot Camp, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm or later (How passionate are you to learn? We stay as late as required.)
We started teaching this Boot Camp about six years ago, as a courtesy for the people who just didn’t have the time for full seven week classes, but still had a desire to at least get started. To insure that everyone gets the most instruction the class is limited to 10 participants. If you do not have a DSLR we have more than twenty to loan out.
Please bring your camera manual if you have one. If not, don’t worry. Be happy. We will teach you what you need to know.
This is a workshop for people just starting out. Our motto: “The less you know, the better we like it.” We won’t have to un-learn you. In the morning, We will go over digital camera settings, help you understand “correct exposure” and then the “how and why” of shutter speeds. The subtleties of aperture (f-stops) and Depth-of-Field (focus) will be explained. You will also learn to understand and use the “language” of photography.
Then you will go outside and shoot two assignments in the neighborhood, so dress appropriately.
During our working lunch, we will help you understand the subtle differences of cameras and between camera manufacturers. Also which cameras are a best buy “used”, if you choose to try and save some money.
In the afternoon, you will learn how to save your images and print with archival, ink jet printers. You may print as many archival, 6″ x 9″ photographs, on 8-1/2″ x 11″ archival paper, as time allows. As with all of our classes we will introduce you to photographic thinking.
Chicago Photography Classes on Ravenswood Avenue offers comprehensive classes that teach Photography to people who are serious about learning. We are a community devoted to learning and teaching quality photography programs.
