Lest we forget…ICC

McDonald CreekReader/photographer Tim Sheets raised a good point yesterday – you can also take part in a number of photographic classes out at Illinois Central College (or most likely whatever Community College sits near your doorstep). At ICC, you can take part in the Adult Community Program, which are a variety of non-credit programs designed to provide adults opportunities to learn new skills, investigate interesting topics, and visit unique places. They’re offered on weekdays, evenings and Saturdays.

Now of course I’m guessing you’re into photography perhaps – or know someone who is. This link will get your right to the class description page (with an Enroll Now link) – so let me pass along the particulars:


Class Number: 4734
Class Date: Wednesday, September 16 – October 21
Class Time: 1:00pm-3:00pm
Class Location: ICC North
Instructor: Ann Conver
Class Cost: $60

Whether you are new to digital photography or have some experience, you’ll learn how to get more out of your camera. Composing images, exposure control, and camera mechanics will keep you discovering what else your camera can do. Basic instruction on photo editing software and advice on storing, organizing and managing photos on your computer will be covered. Bring your camera, a charged up battery and your camera manual to every meeting.

(There’s also – for future reference – a Digital Photography Basics “Plus” class – number 4747. This class is already full for the fall)


Class Number: 4733
Class Date: Wednesday, September 16 – October 21
Class Time: 10:00am-1:00pm
Class Location: ICC North
Ann Conver
Class Cost:

In this power packed workshop, you’ll explore the wonders of the Peoria area parks through the eye of the camera. Participants will be given instruction in composition and exposure with the goal of getting the “best picture in camera”. Critiques will be given of 4” x 6” images produced from each shoot. You may do either film or digital capture. You’ll meet in the classroom the first, third, and last meeting, and 3 times at a park.


Class Number: 4737
Class Date: Tuesday, October 06 – October 20
Class Time: 6:00pm-8:00pm
Class Location: ICC North
Instructor: Tripp
Class Cost: $45

Go beyond living with what you get from the camera, and move into making your photos what you want them to be using the magic of digital photo editing. Storing and printing digital photos will also be discussed.
