$49 for a Photo Safari ($99 Value)

San Francisco Photo Safaris’ expert photographers instruct novices in the art of camera control while showing off the landmarks of San Francisco during tours. Though the specific locations change depending on the tour, guests tote their own cameras as a seasoned shutterbug teaches the basics of white balance, f-stops, and shutter speed during a 40-minute lesson. Guests then practice their newfound skills, capturing stunning views of San Francisco monuments and settings such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, where the Golden Gate Bridge was imprisoned for mail fraud from 1974 to 1980.

Currently, amateur photographers can attend the three-hour Palace of Fine Arts Day Safari, during which they can snap photos of architectural edifices settled among greenery while learning how to portray people, sculptures, and buildings in two dimensions. Instructors tag along as well, sharing constructive critiques of composition, white balance, and exposure.
