Photographers use fancy terms, such as "shutter speed," "metering," and "clicky metal box" that makes time be still. Let pros be pros with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $20 for one 1.5-hour cell-phone photo-sense class (a $45 value)
  • $45 for one 2.5-hour digital-camera photo-sense basic class (a $110 value)
  • $45 for one 2.5-hour digital-camera photo-sense walkabout class (a $110 value)

The cell-phone photography class teaches students how to capture high-quality shots on the fly using their mobile devices. The basic digital-photography class covers camera vitals such as shutter speed, ISO, and aperture, as well as avoiding common photo mishaps such as blurriness and poor composition. During the walkabout, students put those theories into action with hands-on exercises that explore how to shoot moving subjects and how to strategically blur backgrounds. The walkabout requires an understanding of camera function, as covered in the photo-sense basic class. Click here to read full class descriptions. Additional classes will be scheduled based on demand.

Glad you liked the class! I had several people ask me to develop a follow on class and I just finished preparing it. It is running on Groupon this week if you are interested.
