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 workshop from Digital Photo Academy (a $99 value). Workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays at various times and locations.
A professional photographer 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 break a sweat during three-hour on-location workshops with 10 or fewer people. During each open-air outing, the instructor guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces.
Students choose from various class locations, including Bayou Bend's Ima Hogg Mansion, the exotic animal exhibits of the Houston Zoo, and the reflecting pool and lush greenery of Tranquility Park. 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.
