Good photographs can be ruined by redeye, when the bright light of the flash causes eyeballs to protect themselves by turning completely around and exposing their brain cords. Stare straight with this Groupon.
$99 for a Two-Hour Photography Lesson ($199 Value)
Customers have a choice between two types of lessons. The Private Camera Lesson acquaints students with picture-taking elements such as shutter speed, ISO, and aperture, encouraging them to relinquish the automatic mode and build skills toward sports photography and long-exposure photography.
During the Digital Workflow and Photo Editing Lesson, alternatively, students who are comfortable taking pictures but need to learn what comes next immerse themselves in editing, uploading, and processing photos as well as organizing and printing them. The staff recommends downloading Adobe Lightroom software, which can be found on Adobe’s website and is free for 30 days.
Don Wright Designs & Photography
Though he’s worked with juggernauts such as Purina, Animal Planet, and the Discovery Channel, professional shutterbug Don Wright is just as happy to capture images of families, weddings, and historical places. In doing so, he’s able to focus on the storytelling aspect of photography, zooming the lens in on the sweet glances during a married couple’s first dance or using a time-lapse technique to make clusters of stars in the night sky appear to be moving around in circles in an effort to catch each other. To glean a sense of the rich composition of Don’s work, one might look at a cityscape photo of Nashville on his website—red-brick buildings in the foreground contrast with a deep-blue sky, together popping with the electric vividness of police lights.
