A picture is worth a thousand words, which is why a portrait of Lewis and Clark will not suffice for a 5,000-word history thesis. Say what you want to say with this Groupon.
$59 for Chicago Botanic Garden Safari ($119 Value)
Shuttles pick up groups on Michigan Avenue and transport them to the Chicago Botanic Garden for a 4.5-hour photo safari. En route, instructors teach how to use all types of cameras. They cover intermediate techniques such as advanced composition, exposure compensation, and bunny-ear reduction. Once at the garden, shutterbugs explore approximately 385 acres of gardens and displays. Cameras snap shots of vibrant blooms inside greenhouses and outdoors amid various lakes and waterways. Meanwhile, students receive real-time photography critiques, suggested adjustments for producing vivid prints, and the inspiration to capture lasting images without having to carve them into stone tablets.
