Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a four-hour beginning photography class at Gallery Photography in Bountiful. Kelly Sansom, professional photographer with 12 years experience, teaches a course for novices to discover the nooks and crannies their digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera in order to better capture the happiness, fun, and love of timeless moments between family and friends. The introductory course is not too technical, but provides effective and easy to remember tips on composition, lighting, and not covering the lens with a finger, dramatically improving the quality of your shots. Kelly recommends you have a 50mm f/1.8 lens with your D-SLR camera, as you will actually be shooting during the learning process. The class is generally offered twice a month.
When he's behind the camera, Kelly avoids posing his subjects; instead, he thrives on composing playful, candid shots in vibrant color and classic black-and-white. As the owner of Gallery Photography, he's applied this approach to in-studio and on-location photo shoots with families and children as well as weddings. Inside his charming brick studio, he also passes on what he knows through hands-on workshops focused on manual photography techniques or editing with Adobe Photoshop.
