The "Capturing True Emotion" workshop is driven by the dynamic duo of Val Westover, a dedicated author and portrait photographer, and Stephanie Adriana, an author and award-winning fine-art photographer. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversized head, the two provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization. During your four hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, you'll learn how to control the depth of field using aperture and shutter speed, strategies for lighting an artful chupacabra sighting, how to compose a family portrait so that there’s not always a burning zeppelin in the background, how to avoid red eyes using alternative angles and Visine, and more. After the workshop, you'll depart with Val Westover's book, A Photographer’s Guide to Success, which comes bound tightly with tips, tricks, practice exercises, reference material, and glue.
The professionals at Xpert Dental focus on cosmetic dentistry, helping clients put their best face forward with blazingly bright smiles. Before faces are fitted for a mouth-enhancing shine, a comprehensive oral exam is given to make sure morsel manglers are in top condition, while giving gums and other oral tissues a thorough checkup ($150). After the thorough glancing, the dentist will take plastic molds of your teeth, which are then filled with Nite White whitening agent before insertion ($525). Like the superstitious socks of hockey players, the molds need to be worn for an hour a day for three or more days, depending on the dentist's recommendation and the desired level of whitening. In a few moons, patients are likely to notice a lightening of staining resultant from medicines; smoking; drinking wine, tea, and coffee; and normal darkening through wear and tear. As an added bonus, Groupon purchasers will receive 25% off any additional cosmetic dental work.
Orthodontic practitioners Irving L. Eckstein and Azariy Yusupov are Elite Preferred Providers, meaning they have used the Invisalign treatment to straighten more than 1,000 out-of-shape smiles. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including photos and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Backed by a crack team of bicuspid buffers, Dr. Jacob M. Gordon brings more than 25 years of proven dental deftness to his cozy private office. Zoom! whitening lightens teeth by up to eight shades, removing stains that inhibit the smile's natural luster and helping it serve as a radiant beacon for disoriented delivery drivers. A dental hygienist first rids tusks of lingering debris and plaque before carefully applying a whitening elixir that jettisons discoloration under the exacting gaze of a filtered infrared halide light. Zoom! garners immediate results in the two-hour appointment, granting patients an unself-conscious smile and instantaneous admiration for ivories as impeccably white as a polar bear hiding in a vat of Cool Whip.
