Cameras were invented to capture images of luxury goods for subliminal marketing purposes, which is why magazines are littered with pictures of yachts and pillows made of caviar. Learn to take mind-teasing photos with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a half-day digital-photography class from Brian Jorg Outdoors at the Lloyd Library on Plum Street in downtown Cincinnati (a $45 value). The class meets May 21 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Seasoned shutterbug Brian Jorg equips photographers of all skill levels with photo-snapping know-how during half-day fundamentals of digital photography classes. Geared toward beginners, each three-hour course covers a range of digital-SLR basics including exposure, shutter speeds, ISO choices, and how to differentiate between nighttime and accidentally leaving the lens cap on. A basic hardware overview—from the camera itself to lenses and flashes—makes sure pupils harness the power of their investments. As an added photo-quality-boosting bonus, Brian will also provide tips for a number of photographic situations, such as outdoor, close-up, travel, shooting shy ghosts, and wildlife photography.

When horticulturalist Brian F. Jorg isn't cultivating native plants at The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, he treks up to 20,000 miles a year on globe-trotting photographic excursions. As he leads guests through the Great Smoky Mountains or the Peruvian Amazon, he captures nature's grandeur with his digital camera, sharing his ever-increasing portfolio with the world through field guides, educational displays, and mass text messages addressed to “world.” Brian's passion for nature overflows not only into his photography, but into community activities. He can often be seen sharing his horticultural wisdom at area flower shows, teaching classes to the general public, or snapping dynamic images at sporting events.
