What You'll Get
Photography reveals much about the human psyche, from our urge to preserve memories to our instinct to scream "cheese" during lightning storms. Learn all about yourself with today's Groupon: for $67, you get a Canon Live Series Presents: Rebel Photography, Master the Essentials course from Canon Canada, taking place at Mount Royal University on Saturday, August 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (a $149 value).
Canon Canada's professional instructors sharpen shutterbugs' skills in a hands-on course that imparts tips and tactics for achieving mantel-worthy shots with digital single-lens reflex cameras. Over the course of the five-hour seminar, each student is freed from the clutches of automatic modes and learns to properly set camera aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to manipulate the amount of light granted access to the camera's inner sanctum. Like an oil baron and his monocle collection, students also learn to champion a variety of different lenses for different situations, how to read the camera's LCD, and how to navigate camera software. Additionally, instructors impart tips for mastering mode dials and understanding the DSLR camera's auto focus function. By the end of class, students are able to confidently wrangle cameras to capture life's most candid moments, from exuberant children to dancing mayors.
