Though using quantum-leaping lasers to divide segments of the space-time continuum would theoretically capture a slice of life, it could make the universe implode. Safely and professionally preserve moments and memories with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour camera class (a $30 value) and a $20 gift card toward lab services at Fort Worth Camera (a $50 total value).
Fort Worth Camera's camera mavens cater to burgeoning photographers with educational classes and an albums' worth of in-store photo services. For a basic overview of camera usage, students can bring their cameras, charged batteries, and manuals along to the Buttons & Knobs class to acquaint themselves with their digital apparatus. The Digital 101–Photo 1 class shepherds shutterbugs preferring compact and SLR cameras through sessions covering basic photo skills, such as selectively using focus, framing a subject, cropping a frame into fields of three, and intimidating picture subjects into uttering elongated "ee" sounds. Digital 101–Photo 2 wades deeper into the waters of the SLR, exploring the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and the tiny picture elves living within the camera box.
Fort Worth Camera's lab develops traditional 4" x 6" ($0.19), 5" x 7" ($0.99), and 10" x 12" ($5.99) prints. Save time and employ lab techs to sift through shoeboxes of prints and photo-shellacked clogs to cull pictures and scan them ($0.89/image, $139/per box) into a digital format for archiving. They can also bind memories within soft-cover photo books ($19.99 for a 20-page 8" x 10").
