Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was to force everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $49, you get The Ultimate Camera Experience four-hour digital photography workshop and a two-hour photography expedition from Capturing True Emotion (a $450 value). The workshop takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on select days at the University of Utah Union. Photo expeditions last from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the same days, although customers may choose to take part in the expedition on a different day than their workshop.

Capturing True Emotion’s lens sensei Val Westover snaps pictures alongside students as he helps them become complete masters of their cameras, technically and creatively. Through the four-hour workshop's simple, step-by-step instructions, pupils learn to capture both outdoor and indoor tableaus by manipulating aperture, shutter speed, and image sensor. Val also imparts tips on external factors such as lighting, composition, and training the camera not to take pictures all over the house when left home alone. After the workshop, students apply their newfound skills in the real world during an interactive on-location photography expedition. The shoot challenges photographers to capture depth and movement as well as to track elusive snapshots of sunbeams on water and sasquatches discovering cold fusion.

Capturing True Emotion

Capturing True Emotion is driven by a dynamic band of instructors who rove across the continent with cameras and teaching skills in hand. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversize head, the educators provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization, giving participants complete control over all of their camera settings. During the hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, students convene at a tantalizing location to practice skills such as controlling depth of field by adjusting the aperture, composing a family portrait so there's not always a burning zeppelin in the background, using alternative angles to avoid red eye, and other techniques.
