What You'll Get
Photographers swiftly capture what sluggish painters cannot, such as the sparkle of a fleeting smile, the identity of media-shy superheroes, or the split-second a peregrine falcon breaks the sound barrier. Attain photographic know-how with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one three-hour Composition in the Field workshop from Digital Photo Academy, with locations in Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Santa Monica (a $99 value). Workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays at various times and locations.
Staffed by professional photographers with a range of experience, from a Los Angeles Times photojournalist to a veteran red-carpet photographer, Digital Photo Academy teaches shutterbug pupils of all skill levels how to creatively ensnare memories. The Composition in the Field class fans artistic flames during three-hour on-location workshops with an intimate group of up to 12 classmates. Sculpt lackluster freeze-frames into vibrant masterpieces as seasoned sharpshooters guide lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and perfectly timed snaps. Students can choose from nine locations, including Hollywood Boulevard, Chinatown, and the Santa Monica Pier, each offering unique photo-honing opportunities, from Grauman's Chinese Theatre to the 500-foot-tall monument to lesser-known Adam Sandler films. Schlep your own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to the site of your picturesque adventure.
