Jennifer was a great teacher. She has the patience of a saint. I took both Master your Camera Control class as well as the Composition in the Field class. And it was a blast. I’m looking forward to taking more classes

Yes, Jennifer has the patience of a saint!! We miss her greatly when she taught for our NYC market and we used to see her all the time at our national headquarters.

I had a lot of fun doing this class with Jerry. I learned a lot and will no longer rely on my automatic settings. Thanks to Jerry and Richard for being awesome!

We are pleased that you had fun with Jerry. Lots of people say that. He is smart, engaging, charismatic and best of all an excellent photo taker and teacher!! At least we think so.

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 this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

Composition in the Field workshops equip students with the skills to evoke surprising imagery from everyday surroundings. During each indoor or open-air outing, an experienced photographer guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces. In past courses, students have captured images of the complex architecture and stained-glass fixtures of Eldridge Street Synagogue, the streets of Chinatown, the hustle and bustle of Grand Central Terminal, and the colorful foliage of Central Park. Participants should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to the site of their picturesque locale.

Designed for novice photographers who have just bought or are considering buying a digital SLR or digital point-and-shoot camera, the Intro to Digital Cameras workshop covers the basic elements of both camera styles. Students will learn the mechanics behind the light-controlling aperture on their SLR camera, or find the ideal setting for their point-and-shoot models. The workshop concludes with a demo still life and live-model shoot that lets students apply the shutter knowledge and synonyms for “cheese” they’ve just learned in a practical setting.

Workshops take place Saturday and Sunday at various times and locations under the tutelage of professional photographers. Check out the full schedule for more information.
