Jenn Kolb is great
Phil O. · September 26, 2012
I bought this for my son, who has a fair amount of experience already. He LOVED it! He told me that the instructor, Michelle, was great and taught him some new techniques and theories about shooting pictures. He tried it out and showed me the pictures, and they were amazing. He also loved the location: Vizcaya, but definitely wants to go again. I highly recommend for anyone interested in photography and trying new things.

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 from Three Options

Composition in the Field workshops don’t just introduce students to the technical settings of their cameras—they focus on changing the way these budding photographers see the world from behind the lens. During each open-air outing, an experienced photographer teaches students a range of 12+ techniques such as selective focusing, demonstrating how to blur the background and keep the foreground in focus. He or she teaches students how to manipulate natural light and how to use panning to make it seem as though subjects are a whirlwind of motion.<p>

In past courses, students have captured stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces at the Phoenix Zoo. Students have also immortalized the natural majesty of Canyon Lake and the blooming cacti of Desert Botanical Garden. Participants should bring their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to their picturesque locale.<p>

Designed for those who have just bought Photoshop or are using a free trial, the Beginner Photoshop course covers the basic elements of transferring photos from a camera or to a website, cropping photos, and adjusting the contrast and brightness levels. Students will learn the basics of the Curves tool, which allows users to easily adjust the exposure of their photo. A laptop with an installed version of Photoshop is required for the course.<p>

Digital Photo Academy

Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
