Recalling a child’s first bicycle, prom dress, or car is much easier when they’re captured in photographs rather than pickled and stored in the attic. Keep the memories fresh with this Groupon.

Professional photographers lead up to 10 students through Green Lake Park or the Woodland Zoo as they teach basic camera techniques to help them to capture stunning photos of nature and wildlife. Guests learn basic camera settings, proper lighting, and composition as they snap natural wonders with a point-and-shoot or digital SLR camera brought from home. This Groupon does not include the price of zoo admission. See the complete schedule and course description.
Natures Photo Adventures
At Natures Photo Adventures, professional photographers—some of whom have seen their work published on the covers of Audobon Magazine, National Geographic, and Newsweek—guide students of all skill levels on outdoor journeys to learn the essential techniques of photographing wildlife and scenic landscapes. At locales such as High Park's lakefront or the Toronto Zoo, students learn to focus lenses on reflective waters and exotic animals. They also learn the basics of shutter speed, aperture settings, and ISO configurations as they seek out close-up shots of insects snorkeling across the Lynde Shores marsh wetlands. Along with these rudimentary skills, photo tours teach students how to read histograms and properly compose photographs with natural lighting. Students should bring a notebook and must provide their own digital SLR, point-and-shoot digital camera, or Baroque portrait painter.
