I did start one a couple of years ago. It was only one morning a week. I didn't have my dslr at the time, I had a Fuji Finepix S5000 (now my trusty back up)
It was a group of 21 people, me being the youngest by at least 25 years! and I was one of two women on the course.
I was dying to learn how to use my camera and all this guy wanted to teach was editing in photoshop. Fair enough, we needed to know how to edit, but I wanted to know about fstops and shutter speeds. All the 'older gentlemen' on the course had compact point and shoot cameras, the majority with no manual settings.
When I asked if we were going to do any photography, the tutor said.. well, everyone else is now in their third year on the course and have learnt what they need to know. Erm, excuse me, I've paid for the course the same as they have. I said, I thought it was only a 1 year course. He said it was but they enjoyed themselves so much they keep coming back. Well in that case, shouldn't they run a photoshop course separate to a photography course? I spent 4 weeks on this course, took around 6 photographs so that I had something to use in photoshop. So in total I think I must have spent an hour overall taking photographs. the rest of the time was working in photoshop!
I have both taken and taught photography classes. I took a basic one my first year in college, a digital one in college, and darkroom in college, then I started teaching the digital/darkroom one in college. A couple years ago I taught an adult photography class at the local visual arts center, a darkroom class, and one for children (THAT was a headache!!!) I would love to take more classes though, and I definitely want to get back in the darkroom soon!
i am taking 3 photography classes with one of my "idols" at CKU next month in Houston. I wasn't planning on going to CKU b/c of the cost, but when I heard that she was teaching several photography classes, one including lighting, I just HAD to go.
