Photographs reveal the secrets of nature with split-second views of cantering horses, falling water, and flowers that cling to humans’ legs to prevent them from running. Expose scenic truths with today's Groupon: for $49, you get two photography classes at Details, ETC Photography (a $125 value).

A professional lens-bender for more than 14 years, Details, ETC owner Jessica Christensen illuminates camera functions and demystifies grin-getting methodology during introductory digital-photography classes. Groups of snap-happy students tote their own digital SLRs and point-and-shoots to any two weekly one-hour seminars listed on the studio's schedule. Christensen exposes students to cameras’ light-processing ways through exploration of f-stops, shutter speeds, and ISO meters, augmenting lessons with discussions of external lighting conditions and cameras’ well-known fear of the dark. Focus eyes on photographs that illustrate aspects of a successful portrait while aurally absorbing tips on wrangling kids into a fun, productive photo shoot. Between lessons, pupating shutterbugs can practice new techniques or sprout light-reflecting wings to enhance shots, returning to class to share results, ask questions, and participate in a contest to win a 10"x20" family portrait by the teacher.

Details ETC Photography

Jessica Christensen has spent much of her decade-long career photographing models prone to unexplained screaming fits—babies. Families in her First Year Baby Club enjoy a year’s worth of quarterly photo sessions, which document their tot’s transformation from a baby to a baby who makes mortgage payments. For subjects with more birthdays under their belts, Christensen captures lifelong connections in vivid, high-contrast shots of parents and children or newlyweds.

Christensen also helps budding photographers to compose their own professional-quality images with hands-on photo courses. Her introductory sessions focus on camera settings on quality point-and-shoots and DSLRs alike. More advanced workshops explore the shores of Lake Michigan and other outdoor venues, and they frequently involve portraiture practice with live models, rather than the less expressive faces of text-message emoticons.

I took the Phptoshop class and I learned a lot. I also received a lot of personal attention when I needed it.
