America’s prisons are full of novice photographers, who are often confused by the notions of “shooting” subjects, “capturing” beautiful objects, and “removing” red eyes. Keep your pictures pretty and your record clean with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a two-hour single-lens reflex/digital single-lens reflex camera class or a two-hour point-and-shoot course from Jason Domingues Photography (a $100 value). Class participants must be 16 or older.
An acclaimed wedding photographer whose work has been featured in the New York Times online edition, Jason Domingues teaches developing shutterbugs how to snap well-framed portraits, landscapes, and moon-landing shots. Students can choose to take part in the point-and-shoot class—aimed at novices without a SLR/DSLR camera—or one of five SLR/DSLR classes, then travel to Domingues' picturesque studio equipped with a camera, note pad, pen, and bucket for toting home pearls of wisdom. In the What The….? SLR/DSLR course, students learn the meaning of all the oddly shaped buttons on their cameras, as well as techniques for organizing and storing digital photos in the null space between dimensions. Other DSLR courses cover topics from lighting to editing, while point-and-shoot classes help students absorb concepts such as the essentials of framing, methods for using natural light, and other techniques for trapping friends and scenery in flat memory-cages.
Most Jason Domingues Photography classes combine fact-packed lectures with opportunities for shooting practice and Q&A, ensuring no student goes home with lingering questions about where baby cameras come from. Consult the DSLR and point-and-shoot schedules to avoid conflicts with your cat yoga courses; class schedules change monthly, so check back if the class you want isn't offered.
- Earlier this month Domingues took part in a Trash the Dress session involving 11 brides and several photographers in Atlantic City, N.J., an event to publicize the phenomenon and train photographers. – Tim Engle, AZCentral.com
- Jason is a fabulous photographer and a nice guy. His shots are a bit more artistic than run-of-the-mill wedding poses, but the main selling point for me was that he put me at ease and basically took pictures of us having fun, so everyone ended up looking beautiful. – Carissa419, WeddingWire
