    Chicago Landmarks Photography Tour

    Ready to graduate from taking admittedly delightful selfies? Or just can’t figure out all of those fancy doodads on your new DSLR camera? This tour makes learning photography a snap. That’s because you’ll be learning in the real world, rather than some uninspiring classroom, with a professional photographer to show you how it’s done. The setting for this class is none other than Chicago itself, specifically some of its most photogenic locales, such as Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, Chicago River, and General Logan Statue. Along the way to getting know the windy city a little better, you’ll learn easy techniques to take beautiful pictures, and become exposed to photographic nomenclature. Exposed. Heh.
