Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $65, you get an introduction to photography workshop at Aperture Academy, located in Campbell (a $135 value). Award-winning nature photographer Stephen W. Oachs guides pupal shutterbugs to harness the power of today's sophisticated digital cameras. The three-hour seminar, scheduled once a month on Saturdays, simplifies key camera techniques and settings, and dispenses tips on editing photos to remove evidence of washboard money laundering. A catered lunch keeps pupils primed to spot each lens-worthy moment, be it a flock of pigs taking flight or an unethical astrophysicist stealing fire from the heavens.

Great intro class

The class was outstanding. I have already booked a private one-on one session and will follow that up with booking workshops. Great value for the money if you really want to increase your skills.
