What You'll Get

Photography has progressed exponentially over the past century with the development of digital cameras, faster shutter speeds, and smiling. Capture the latest trends of emotional technology with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a full-day basic photography workshop ( from Fotoscool (a $280 value). Full-day workshops are held at the BRCA Community Centre and run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break. Choose from the following dates:

Fotoscool’s acclaimed photographers and cinematographers guide shutterbugs through the basics of photography during full-day workshops held in the BRCA Community Centre’s modern, spacious interior. Amid light from hanging lamps and floor-to-ceiling windows, up to 80 students get introduced to digital SLR photography through expert instruction, interactive exercises, and bonding human-camera trust falls. While flashes are optional, attendees should bring an SLR camera with a midrange lens, two memory cards, and two batteries. Learn to eschew the camera’s auto-programmed modes for manual settings that facilitate personalized picture-taking without the hassle of monogramming each pixel. A midsession lunch break serves as a respite for weary trigger fingers, and pupils can take a breath of fresh winter breezes during strolls through the Bridgeland Riverside Community Association’s verdant outdoor pathways along the Bow River.
