What You'll Get
Photographers swiftly capture what sluggish painters cannot, such as the sparkle of a fleeting smile, the identity of a media-shy superhero, or the split second a peregrine falcon breaks the sound barrier. Attain photographic know-how with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a three-hour Composition in the Field photo workshop from Digital Photo Academy (a $99 value). Workshops are held on Saturday and Sunday at various times and locations.
A crew of seven professional photographers teaches shutterbugs of all skill levels how to creatively ensnare memories in Digital Photo Academy's array of informative classes. The Composition in the Field class fans artistic flames and helps cameras to break a sweat during three-hour on-location workshops with an intimate group of 10 or fewer people. During each open-air outing, an instructor guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces.
Students choose from various class times and locations, including a sightseeing snapfest through the indoor and outdoor verdure of Lincoln Park and Lincoln Park Conservatory and the bustling cafés and streets of Wicker Park. During the Hyde Park session, instructors will share tips on framing architecture and persuading pedestrians to pose for photos. Participants should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod or an anti-redeye spell book, to the site of their picturesque adventure.
