Photography has progressed exponentially over the past century with the development of digital cameras, faster shutter speeds, and smiling. Capture the latest trends of emotional technology with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a basic photography workshop on October 23rd from Arising Images (a $125 value).
Arising Images' photographer and tutor splits time between skillful portraiture and classes designed to pile on passion to fledgling shutterbugs. The basic photography workshop, dubbed Photography 101, aims to teach camera-eyes of all skill levels the basics and fundamentals of digital photography. The workshop kicks off with a discussion of photo-snapping gadgetry and accessories, forming a bond between photographer and camera more effective than reading National Geographic under the covers.
After the expert paparazzo explains the digital ins and outs of photo storage and printing, pupils glean tips on photographic composition and when to adjust aperture, shutter speed, and white balance. A breakout session focuses on each student’s specific pieces of equipment, making sure courageous photosmiths know how to change the settings of their cameras to finally capture proof of the yeti ravaging their backyards.

When Prem and Cheridy Mukherjee got married in 2001, they didn't know anything about creative wedding photography. Prem's interest in taking photos had been piqued during his travels in Sydney, Australia, but it wasn't until after he had met and married Cheridy that his interest flourished into a real talent. Cheridy soon picked up the camera herself, and together the husband-and-wife team became Arising Images, expertly capturing shots for weddings, engagement announcements, and family-portrait sessions. In 2009, with more experience under their belts, the couple wanted another shot at their wedding album. They once again donned white attire, along with a colorful pair of sneakers, and posed for artistic, playful shots that truly captured their joy—something they strive for in their own photography sessions.
Prem, who has shared his expertise at national conventions, passes along his camera-friendly knowledge to budding photographers. He spends the sessions educating students on the functions of their own cameras. Private lessons shower all the attention upon one participant, while a tag-along on a photo shoot or wedding allows students to view Prem and Cheridy in their professional environment.
