A picture is worth a thousand words, making photographs and stick-figure sketches the easiest solutions to looming dissertation deadlines. Take advantage of efficient visual-communication strategies with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a two-hour photography class at Kim Crenshaw Photography in Apex (a $175 value).

Boasting expert educational and experiential credentials, Kim Crenshaw alternates between snapping professional shots of posing subjects and imbuing camera novices with basic picture-taking techniques. During two-hour hands-on classes, apprentices bring their own cameras so Kim can aid them in figuring out where essential buttons, switches, and ticklish spots can be located on each model. Kim breaks down essential components of photography, such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, relating each new aspect to the specific makes of camera that each student brandishes. Once class concludes, pupils can ask permission to peruse Kim's indoor studio and outdoor garden bedecked with antique stained-glass panels, multiple garden paths flanked by picket fences, a 1946 Chevrolet Stylemaster, and an anti-blur force field, which all appear in her portraiture.

Kim Crenshaw Photography

In Kim Crenshaw Photography’s onsite garden, a swing hangs from a jasmine-wreathed arbor, frog-inhabited lily pads carpet a pond, and a 1946 Chevrolet Stylemaster waits for models to lean against its fenders. The garden abuts the old farmhouse that houses Crenshaw’s equally scenic studio, with a wall of antique stained-glass panels and a design that captures streams of sunlight throughout the day. Crenshaw devoted her first decade behind the camera to natural-light photography, and custom renovated her current studio-garden complex to ensure she could still practice her specialty.

Now a 25-year veteran of the photography scene, Crenshaw continues to draw on the fundamentals she learned when earning her BFA in graphic design and photography. This fine-arts background deters her from trendy shots of subjects spelling out the day's headlines in semaphore signals; instead, she strives to capture timeless beauty in her portraits of families, kids, and bridal parties. Subjects can discuss options and expectations with Crenshaw during free preshoot consultations, and select their favorite shots during postshoot slideshow viewings. The studio’s frame shop can border prints—or painted portraits modeled after prints—in a diverse array of frames.

She is an expert and has helped me to use my DSLR in manual mode and adjust different pictures to get the right picture.
