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 to Landers Photography School. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get admission to one photography seminar of your choice (a $105 value).
- For $149, you get a six-week Introduction to Photography class series (a $364.80 value).<p>
The experienced instructors at Landers Photography School share their experience with students to illuminate the technical basics of manual camera use as well as professional compositional techniques. The two-hour seminars welcome all levels of photographers, with beginners trying the Getting to Know Your Camera class to explore the various knobs, buttons, and howling noises that new camera owners may encounter. Low-Light Photography ensures bright stills in dim rooms or on gloomy days, and Landscape and Nature lessons address finicky issues that arise when composing images of the outdoors. Experts coach students in Travel: Taking Better Vacation Pictures so travelers can capture clear, compelling shots of sunsets, beaches, or the inside of an airport customs office.
The six-session Introduction to Photography series educates participants with 12 hours dedicated to photography fundamentals. Attendees apply technical basics such as how to use apertures to adjust light exposure and time-sensitive shutter speeds to lectures on visual-composition theory. Each week, participants present their shots to be evaluated by the class instructor and perused for cameos from Waldo. No experience is necessary, but students must provide their own camera with full manual capabilities or a cardboard box with a caricature artist taped inside.
