3-5 days after every tourist’s trip to Chicago, an out of focus self-portrait of them at the Bean will inevitably surface on Facebook. And while, yes, this night class will converge downtown at Millennium Park, and, yes, there may or may not be snapshots of you standing under one of Chi town’s most famous landmarks, none of your Facebook friends will mistake you for a tourist because your pictures certainly won’t be out of focus.
Come dressed for the weather on this after dark adventure that takes you through the process of shooting digital photography at night. The 101 and 102 classes cover the basics of taking pictures during the day, but the 103 class will break down the nuances of aperture and depth of field with low light, long exposure photos, and ISO for nighttime shooting. Whether your aim is to become a professional photographer, or you’re just eager to capture the antics of your crazy friends during a night on the town, knowing how to shoot in low light settings is a crucial skill to have in your photographic toolbox.
Printing and framing is optional, but is not required or included in the cost of the class.
