Founded by a former United States Air Force photojournalist, Images by T. Marie helps train the next generation of photographers during 90-minute hands-on classes. Equipped with personal digital cameras or those provided by the instructor, groups of up to five blossoming shutterbugs venture outdoors to take advantage of Mother Nature's professional-quality mood lighting. Photography basics, such as camera operation, exposure, and composition are covered so that pupils can snap frame-worthy shots of wildlife, people, or other cameras. After class, each student's photos are emblazoned onto a take-home CD. Classes are usually held on Saturday mornings, but times and locations are flexible. This Groupon also bestows customers with a 25% off coupon for future photography services from Images by T. Marie.
