Practice your photography skills while capturing historic and distinctive Chicago images. Every other week, members of the study group will go on photo shoots that reflect Chicago, reassembling after the shoot for lunch to discuss our challenges with the assignment. On alternate weeks, we will meet at Wieboldt Hall to discuss the upcoming shoot and review a specific photographic method or technique to be practiced in the field. We will also review and critique our images to help improve our composition and photography skills. We assist each other in analyzing the photo taking process. Lastly, we will discuss how some postprocessing features might enhance the photo — however, post processing is not required for this study group. A few of our photo shoots will take place in the early AM and/or late PM to “capture Chicago in its best light.” Walking 1-2 miles is not unusual during our shoots. This study group is open to all levels of
photographers but a working knowledge of aperture, shutter speed and ISO is expected. Requirements: Completing weekly assignments on a specific photography method or technique; DSLR or mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses; and manual control cameras only. No phone cameras, please. Access to Canvas, Lynda.com and You Tube are required.
