Summer Photography Classes at Truman College Starting on June 6th, 2018


Hello everyone!  I just want to make you aware of the new photography classes for summer at Truman College. There are three different classes that you can choose Beginners, Studio Lighting and Darkroom.

The Beginner’s class starts on June 9th. 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 the same day, June 9th. 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.

Wednesday night we have the Darkroom class. In this class, you learn how to properly expose film, how to develop it, how to print photographs, all with 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 an image appear. This is what got me hooked on photography some 40 years ago.  Come and learn how real photographs are made.

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