Taking my first photography class

Well I finally decided it might be fun and of course worth while to explore our local community college's Photography courses. The start with a real basic intro course for basic BW film that I am hoping to get waived as its a pre-req for most of the other classes...including the intro to digital photography which I am planning on starting as this is required for the even more advanced classes.

I am sure there are many things I may be taking for granted, but I certainly would not call myself a beginner by any means. I am pretty sure the dept. head will recognize me from the fair as he was one of the judges .

I meet the prof on Tuesday, show my portfolio and take a long quiz.

I know where the on switch is,
I know what "P" stands for
I know how to change lenses
and I know what ISO represents.

The classes through sound very fun and a lot of work. I hope to expand my business into portraiture but want to learn more about artificial lighting and posing people. Well save those classes for another semester.

I think the overall best part is that for once I am taking a class for the fun of it, and not really because I need it for my degree, job, etc...

Re: Taking my first photography class

Kudos to you, Clark, for taking a risk and continuing your education. I thought about doing something similar and thought something similar about my skill level. It occurred to me, however, that returning to the basics might not be such a bad idea after all. I can't tell you how many times in education I've been surprised by the simple things I didn't know that I've just worked around.

Re: Taking my first photography class

I think you'll find going back reviewing some fundamentals will be worth your time especially when in a class with other students. Your experiences/knowledge are a good learning tool for others. Enjoy!

Re: Taking my first photography class

I did well on the first quiz and had a lot of fun on our first shooting exercise.

I am so used to using LR and this class is using PS and ACR using bridge for workflow.

Looking forward to each class and continued work.
