Photography Class

 I took a 6-hour crash course in beginner's digital photography at the Chicago Photography Academy last weekend.
The class was definitely legit, and it was so fun to get a better idea of how my camera actually works.
If anything though, it showed me just how much I don't know and how much I have to learn, ha!
I wish it could be just creative, but there's a lot of technical involved in photography that leaves me with, well, lots to figure out. 

The academy was in the Lakeview neighborhood, and I took the "L" there, which I don't usually do.
Here's a couple shots I took on my way home that day.

I love that Chicago is my home.

Fun! I took a weekend crash course in photography last summer. I had hoped to save up and buy a DSLR last year, but with my illness it hasn't happened yet. I know the feeling of being overwhelmed with all the technical aspects of photography though. I prefer just the creative part too. Happy Picture taking!
