Photography Classes for Fall 2019 at Truman College

Hello everyone! The dates for the fall photography classes at Truman College have been released.     There are several different classes that you can choose from:  Beginners Photography, Studio Lighting Photography, Photoshop, and Darkroom Photography. The dates and times are as follows:

The Beginner’s class starts on September 7th and ends  on
October 19th, 2019
.  The class runs from 9:00 to 11:00 am and is designed to teach you everything about the camera, lenses, flash, filters, composition and much, much more. You can either use a digital or a film camera for this class.

The Studio lighting class starts on September 7th and ends on October 19th, 2019.  The class runs from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm and is designed to teach you how to create amazing photos using flash units placed away from the camera triggered by remote control inexpensive units; you will learn about different types of light and how to create cinematic looking photos.  We try to have a model for every class and for this purpose we look for people interested in modeling. We exchange photos for their time as we cannot pay the models (no budget!).

Darkroom Photography class starts on September 4th and ends on October 16th, 2019

In this class, you will discover why many young people are turning to the old ways, creating images with film getting your hands on a print and doing things the way the old masters use to do it. In this class, you will learn how to properly expose film, how to develop it, how to print photographs, all with a black and white film. This is a very cool class and it has become very popular with people that are tired of sitting in front of their computer trying to make digital images look cool. There is nothing like placing a piece of photographic paper in the developer and see the image appear as if by magic. Extremely Cool!

Photoshop for Photography, this class starts on October 25th to December 13th, 2019

This class is for students that want to learn how to edit RAW or JPG images in Photoshop, you also lean the principals of photo restoration and other things like replacing a sky on your photos. This is all for beginners and not for advanced students.

To register for any of these classes, just call Truman College at 773-907-4440. Laura Smith will help you register over the phone or the internet.  

Thank you and I hope to see many of you in my classes.
