Content was well organized and flowed nicely. Video instruction was excellent - clear instructions supplemented with relevant and useful examples. The best online course I've taken, and I've taken alot.

I recently went on a composition tour of Chinatown with Peter, and I was absolutely blown away. I had so much fun and could not believe how much I learned in the span of three hours. I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating such a well thought out and incredibly fun program. I was not only inspired by my awesome instructor, Peter, but also by the group of people that I was with that all had the same passion to become better.

Crystal, We are so pleased that you found Peter to be an inspiration. We agree! Post on our Community Facebook page, Digital Photo Academy, and likely you will get some feedback from Peter and our other instructors from around the country.

I recently purchased an entry level camera and was a little overwhelmed with how to use it effectively. I decided to purchase this Groupon to get some field experience. The class was great! Sam was the instructor and extremely helpful and patient. If you have questions he has the answers. He was very knowledgeable with various cameras. I took some amazing sunset photos!

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

Workshops occur in multiple venues, including Hillsborough River Park, Tarpon Springs, and the University of Tampa. Click here to view a complete listing of workshop venues and dates.

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. 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.

Composition workshops are held Saturday and Sunday at various times and locations, and digital-camera intro courses are held at Samy Johnston's Downtown Studio, and both courses are taught by a team of professional photographers. Check out the full schedule for more information.
