During the Renaissance, whenever someone wanted to commemorate an awesome party, everyone would have to freeze in place for days while Da Vinci painted the scene. Instantly snap every second of raging bacchanalia with today's Groupon for expert photography instruction. For $24, you a get one of three basic digital-camera classes from JDP Photography, a $49 value.

Owned and operated by an accomplished photojournalist and educator, JDP and its photo masters not only use lensed wands to bring still life to life or capture a harrowing midair moment—they'll teach you how to do it, too. Apprentice photo poachers bring their digital camera and its manual to a three-hour Groupon class scheduled on Monday and Wednesday nights from January through July 2011. In the basic digital cameras class, you'll come to understand the strengths and perils of digital photography while you learn the ins, outs, and upside downs of adjusting shutter speed, aperture, and the on/off button.

Those who already know how to handle their sharpshots can pick one of two more advanced classes that go several steps beyond the basics. Through practical assignments, you'll build your skills in composition, lighting, and other fields of technical artistry, with an emphasis on putting more control into your hands instead of your camera's finicky automatic non-hands.

JDP Photography

Julie Diebolt Price, president of JDP Photography, puts friendly faces on websites and brochures by crafting portraits for corporations, entrepreneurs, and organizations. In addition to helping clients such as Standard Pacific Homes, Women Helping Women, and Orange County Rescue Mission, Julie chronicles programs and events for the National Association of Women Business Owners, and she rubs elbows with august institutions such as the Professional Photographers of California and the Professional Photographers of America. Despite a successful professional career—her portfolio is filled with group portraits, product images for advertisements, and stock photos—she has not neglected her artistic side: a piece she dubbed “Tableau at Badling” landed a spot in the PPA’s 2010 International Photographic Competition general collection. When she isn't snapping photos, she teaches others how to use cameras such as DSLR, point-and-shoot, and camerae obscurae.
