Are you inquisitive about photography lessons? It could be that you had taken photography classes when you were a kid but didn’t continue to keep doing it. Well, it’s definitely not too late to start out just as before. Get out of your own comfort zone, immerse yourself into different adventures! Routine can definitely be terrifically boring and no one can deny the strength of it, but occasionally you actually ought to step it up. Photography classes usually are a wonderful approach to meet completely new friends and make your everyday living more exciting. Any time you get photography lessons you are working out parts of the brain you don’t in fact utilize on a day to day basis. Photography will most certainly give a boost to one’s own brainpower, while breaking up your schedule. So dust off that camera and take a chance.
Lots of places in Chicago provide with many different ranges of photography classes to accommodate an individual’s wants, simply make sure you actually feel secure with this level you are stepping into the lesson at. You may perhaps possibly be able to drop-in for no cost or spend a tiny fraction of the amount for the first few photography lessons and make sure it is something you truly really want to perform.

We took the digital SLR in a day class and really enjoyed it. it is a lot of information being squeeze into one day, but it peaked my interest in taking more classes.

2. Richard Stromberg’s Chicago Photography Classes
4001 N Ravenswood Ave
Chicago, IL 60613
This is the BEST place to learn photography! Richard knows more about photography and has more passion about teaching others than anyone I know. The best part for beginners is the free 90-minute workshop he offers a few times a month, and the fact that the first session of the photo 1 class is free – giving you a really good idea of his teaching style before you commit.
Richard’s photo 1 class is a great value. The 8 week class includes a 2-hour lecture (where assignments are given) and a 3-hour lab where you learn how to edit and print your photos using Adobe Lightroom. Richard also helps you identify the equipment you need to take the best photos (i.e. a 50mm lens is a great start!) and provides each student with a full pack of professional quality photo paper.

If you are thinking of taking a class at CPC…. DO IT. It is worth every cent. I am trying to establish myself as a photographer in Chi and the class I took was absolutely spectacular. My photography improved 10 fold. I took the Introduction to Digital Photography class with Melis Bursin. She is a wonderful instructor and I definitely recommend her.
