Without photography, capturing memories on the fly would require carrying canvases everywhere and spending heavily on point-and-shoot paint. Take full advantage of modern technology with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour photography-training session and a one-hour walkabout in Fort Langley from LesleyAnn Photography (a $250 value).
Putting the LesleyAnn in LesleyAnn Photography, the eponymous owner takes her aperture aptitude and shutter-speed skillfulness into the field, coaching photographic novices in picturesque Fort Langley. The personable professional will teach aspiring shutterbugs the basics of aperture, shutter speed, compositional tricks and tips, and the uses of various film speeds. The second half of the walkabout unleashes newly minted lenspersons into the wild under the watchful care of Lesley, on hand to answer questions and help participants release fairies from camera traps. Each walkabout is limited to five people, and everyone is bestowed an 18-page reference booklet that reinforces the lesson but completely undercuts the popular belief that photographs are two-dimensional soul prisons. Participants must bring their own memory cards and DSLR or point-and-shoot camera with the ability to change the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Reservations are required, so be sure to email to schedule a session.
