Choose Between Two Options

The beginner’s course acquaints camera novices with the f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO settings on their digital point-and-shoot or DLSR cameras. Targeted at those who have mastered the basics of exposure adjustment, advanced courses take up to 15 students outside for hands-on exploration in one of three courses: Advanced Camera Skills, which focuses on manual camera settings in an indoor and outdoor environment; Outdoor Landscape Photography, which teaches students to harness dynamic dusk or dawn light on Lake Michigan; or Outdoor Posing and Lighting, which allows students to practice posing male and female models against natural backdrops. <p>

Jessica Christensen has spent much of her decade-long career photographing models prone to unexplained screaming fits—babies. Families in her First Year Baby Club enjoy a year’s worth of quarterly photo sessions, which document their tot’s transformation from a baby to a baby who makes mortgage payments. For subjects with more birthdays under their belts, Christensen captures lifelong connections in vivid, high-contrast shots of parents and children or newlyweds.

Christensen also helps budding photographers to compose their own professional-quality images with hands-on photo courses. Her introductory sessions focus on camera settings for point-and-shoots and DSLRs alike. More advanced workshops explore the shores of Lake Michigan and other outdoor venues, and they frequently involve portraiture practice with live models, rather than the less expressive faces of text-message emoticons.

I took the Phptoshop class and I learned a lot. I also received a lot of personal attention when I needed it.
