What you'll learn in this digital photography class:

The Fundamentals classes are, by far, the most popular starting point for photography classes in Chicago and are designed to give the complete beginner a solid understanding of their digital camera and the fundamental knowledge needed to embark upon a lifetime's exploration of photography.

There are no 'hidden' or extra fees to pay for any classes at the Academy. There is no Lab fee. All of the supplies needed for printing are supplied by the Academy. There is no required lens to buy. In fact, the fee covers everything you need for the class.

The 'Digital in a Day' class has much of the same fundamentals of photography information but does not cover the information in as much depth. If you prefer to learn how to take great photographs without having to 'fiddle' with them on a computer, this class will work for you.

Required Materials:
  • Digital SLR Camera (DSLR)
  • Camera User Guide (if you have one)
  • Lens
  • Memory card
  • Fully charged battery
  • Notebook and pen
The Academy will supply all other necessary equipment and materials at no extra charge.

The photography subjects:
  • How a DSLR works
  • Camera Settings
  • Mode Dial
  • White Balance
  • Metering Mode
  • Autofocus
  • File Formats
  • Image Archiving
  • Shutter Speed
  • Hand Held Camera Shake
  • Critique
  • Motion Blur
  • Aperture
  • Depth of Field
  • ISO
  • f16 Rule
  • Exposure Compensation
  • Exposure Lock
  • The ABC of exposure
  • Quality of Light
  • Composition
In addition to the above topics, the Four Week Digital classes cover the following subjects

Reviewed by Biff P. on 11/21/2018
I definitely got my money’s worth. The course is fast paced and covers a ton of ground. I walked away understanding why certain things happen when taking a photo and how to adjust. The instructor took time to help with individual issues and questions.
