What you'll do

We will be walking around the Downtown and Riverwalk area while visiting several of the world-famous architectural gems Chicago has to offer. We will be covering not only the history of these relics, but also learn how to capture them at night using professional photography equipment. If you have a camera bring it along, and if not you can use one of mine! We will explore various techniques such as long exposures and light painting, and get some great shots of you on the iconic Chicago river. Once we finish our photo tour, I will upload the pictures to a folder and share it with you. From where you can download your photos, and we can then share any new creations you or I come up with. I will then share the photographs after the tour so that you can see, print, and share with family and friends. I am willing to customize the tour based on your interests whether it be photography fundamentals, shooting at night, light painting, or mobile photography.

Eric

Accompany a native photographer on an unforgetful journey down Chicago's stunning river while learning how to capture amazing nighttime images. I am passionate about architecture, light, and sharing my knowledge with others so they can then make their own works confidently without auto mode. What's fulfilling about giving these experiences to locals and visitors alike, from all walks of life, is helping to unlock other people's creativity in a truly visually stunning environment. You will walk away knowing multiple techniques and photographic philosophies that will take you to new heights!

What's included

Equipment
Camera & Tripod We will both have the opportunity to use a Nikon DSLR with multiple lenses to choose from plus a tripod.
