My brother and I are signing up for a photography class thru the local community college. I e-mailed the instructor to see if it would be OK to skip the beginner's course because I feel fairly comfortable with the basics of the camera. He said it's a lecture course about learning the camera, settings, and the correlation between them (The agenda is essentially the 'Understand Exposure' book which I have read and re-read ) The class I signed up for is an extension of the basics course, where we put principles to practice.
It will mostly be field trips to spots around the city. We'll practice nature, action, close-up, architecture, night, and travel photography. The instructor even said we'd try some macro photography!
It just stinks there will be no people photography I need help with that part....
I'm just happy to have some one on one instruction on composition and settings. Something I haven't had and have just been flying by the seat of my pants!
Has anyone else taken a photography class? If you have, what was your experience? If you haven't, would you like to?
