Capturing Chicago through Photography

ID : 1142   
« back to classes page
CourseGraphic This study group will provide an opportunity for participants to practice and grow their photographic skills. It will consist of visits to notable, historic Chicago sites or events, where we will have the chance to shoot photos that reflect an area of the city or a particular photographic skill. The next week we will participate in a second session in which the work completed the previous week will be analyzed. Participants will review, critique and discuss our images to help improve our composition and photography skills. Prior to going out on location, photographic methods and techniques will be discussed for practice in the field. In an effort to meet our goal of improving our art of photography, we will plan for some of our shoots to be in the early morning or late afternoon. Walking will be a part of the location shoots. As part of this learning process, we will discuss how post-processing features could enhance the photos, but this is not intended as a post-processing course. The study group is for intermediate level photographers with a working knowledge of aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Required: DSLR or mirrorless camera with interchangeable lens, manual control cameras only. No phone cameras please. Internet resources:, NU Canvas, Dropbox and YouTube. No class on 11/22/18.
