$49 for a Four-Hour DSLR Photo Essentials Class for One (a $225 value)

During the comprehensive DSLR Photo Essentials class, teachers with more than 20 years of experience guide beginning photogs through the workings of DSLR cameras, acquainting them with the settings, flash, and capabilities of their own equipment. Novices learn how and when to tweak shutter speed, aperture, and white balance to shoot the best possible photo in every situation, from low light to stroboscopic discotheques. For this class, snap-happy pupils must bring their own DSLR camera, memory card, instruction manual, and photo ID. Students can check the schedule for class dates and times.

Balanced Exposure

With a career spanning more than 20 years, Balanced Exposure's owner, Russell Lowe, has worn many hats, including forensic photographer, wedding photographer, and commercial photographer. Russell has always had a passion for teaching, which is why he finally opened up his own studio space. He and his staff help novice photographers shake hands with their shutter button during DSLR Camera Basics and introductory Photo Essentials classes for DSLR/Mirrorless cameras, whereas DSLR Advanced classes lead intermediate students further into the world of flash lighting by exploring how to use external flashes, set up studio lighting, and sell paparazzi-style photos of local squirrels to National Geographic. Crime-scene processing classes draw on Russell's background as a court-qualified expert in forensic photography and an evidence technician to teach techniques used by real-world forensics experts. Aspiring wedding and studio photographers hone their craft and practice postproduction techniques in the fully equipped studio, which also hosts professional portrait shoots.

I learned from this class. There are more offerings. I wish there would have been time to ask specific questions though. I would recommend it!
