$49 for a Two-Hour Beginner's Photography Class ($125 Value)

The beginner’s photography class acquaints camera novices with the f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO settings on their own digital point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras. After arming her charges with the technical basics, instructor Jessica Christensen delves into such formal topics as posing, isolating the subject, and properly using the flash.

Details ETC Photography

Jessica Christensen has spent much of her decade-long career photographing models prone to unexplained screaming fits—babies. Families in her First Year Baby Club enjoy a year’s worth of quarterly photo sessions, which document their tot’s transformation from a baby to a baby who makes mortgage payments. For subjects with more birthdays under their belts, Christensen captures lifelong connections in vivid, high-contrast shots of parents and children or newlyweds.

Christensen also helps budding photographers to compose their own professional-quality images with hands-on photo courses. Her introductory sessions focus on camera settings for point-and-shoots and DSLRs alike. More advanced workshops explore the shores of Lake Michigan and other outdoor venues, and they frequently involve portraiture practice with live models, rather than the less expressive faces of text-message emoticons.
