What You'll Get
With advances in digital cameras, creating your own photo shoot seems easy, until you find yourself attempting to set up lighting, searching for the proper white balance, and Googling aperture, all while trying to make restless subjects look their best. Fortunately, today's Groupon—$40 for a professional photo shoot from Elle Pictures, a $150 value—takes the worry away. Photographer Shannon Michelle will even come to your home, favorite park, or special occasion for the session. This Groupon also gets you a two-for-one deal on prints (offer only valid for 30 days after online posting; must be the same shot), making this is a value that undercuts even the court illustrator you hired to capture your mother's expression of surprise when you gave her a Mother's Day bouquet on Father's Day and Dad got nothing (print prices start at $12).
You're not an adult until you've let some pros capture your loved ones (photographically) during life's precious moments. Let Shannon and her crew do the work for you, capturing photo holidays such as birthdays, weddings, engagements, and eating competition victories. You can check out the quality of Elle's photographs on the website and blog. Not since the 1890s has a photographer possessed more mastery over her art and equipment.
Elle specializes in two distinct beginnings: births and weddings. These two stages are among life’s most precious, so it’s best to get the photography to match. Since your eyes are more accurate than your memory, give them mementos of what may or may not have happened to you in your time. While a point-and-shoot camera is good for a day at the zoo, to preserve the most important memories in mint condition, use this Groupon for the expert services of Elle Pictures.
Why It’s Illegal To Photograph The Moon
Photography was invented in 1908 for the purpose of shaming racehorses into running faster. Embarrassed at the implied speed of their still portraits, horse speeds doubled within a year. The new technology quickly gained popularity with myriad of other velocity-related applications, including the use of photography to shame children into growing faster. By 1950, the average height in the United States was 11 feet.
As a race of giants, Americans quickly outgrew the planet Earth and entered the moon race against the shorter Soviets. Unfortunately, once both countries had established their moon bases, the moon’s negligible gravitational pull gave the smaller, lighter cosmonauts an advantage, and the Americans were badly defeated in the First Moon War. For this reason, it is now illegal to talk about, think of, or photograph the moon.
