What You'll Get
Photography can catch the instant an F-16 reaches Mach 1, the split-second when a bubble bursts, and the exact moment when a space-walking astronaut realizes he locked his keys in the space shuttle. Learn how to capture the world’s in-the-blink-of-an-eye images with today’s Groupon: for $100, you get one boot camp course of your choice at the Chicago Photography Center (a $225 value), with classes meeting at its Lakeview location.
The Chicago Photography Center's boot camp classes allow image-catching novices to take a one-day crash-course of their choice of several topics—this deal is valid for the center's digital photography, film, Photoshop, Beyond Basics Lightroom, or tabletop/product digital photography boot camp classes. The Chicago Photography Center provides aspiring kodachromiacs with a camera for digital and film boot camps only, while a camera is not needed for Photoshop or Beyond Basics Lightroom because not pictures are taken. With these courses, true beginners can work with the center's gifted, approachable teachers, each with extensive knowledge in the artistic, technical, and sometimes ghost-catching nature of photography.
Those yearning to snap pictures with digital clarity can take the digital photography class, where they'll learn how to operate their device and get their eye-catching prints published. The Photoshop course can teach how to perfect pictures with a professional finish by adjusting color and tone, or how to convince your uncle that you spent an afternoon in a hot tub with President Calvin Coolidge. Regardless of which class you choose, you'll be immersed in the topic at hand and leave ready to show off your new photographic prowess to friends and family. Take a look at the schedule and call ahead to reserve a spot.
