I e-mailed some of the people teaching the undergrad photo classes here, asking if (a) they'd mind if I sat in, and/or (b) if they could recommend what level would be beneficial to me (as the descriptions for Photo 2-4 are generally the same). Three days into the semester ... I got an e-mail back from the faculty member I e-mailed about Photo 2/3 (the guy for Photo 1 never got back to me). This is his response: My first (specific) thought is that no, I'm not interested in solely making better "pretty pictures" ('cept in astrophotography), but I want to learn more about composition and ideas for shooting various scenes and media. So my general reaction after reading the reply is that I really don't know if what he's saying the focus of the class is will help me or not. So should I take the time to sit in on the class, or should I say, "Thanks, but no thanks?" What do you guys think? Does this sound like a good class?
