I bought this Groupon for my little sister who is in high school. She had an amazing time and enjoyed the group atmosphere. She learned a lot and will be returning soon.

What You'll Get

Although poor lighting makes for fun haunted houses, it tends to make for unflattering photographs and disastrous archery tournaments. Learn how to free your Facebook profile from unsightly eye shadows, shiny foreheads, and superfluous eyes with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a three-hour photography class on composition, outdoor lighting, and shooting in the manual mode (a $150 value) from Jimmy Loyd Photography, which meets in front of the Japanese Gardens in Hermann Park. Any camera is welcome for this class.

When not freelancing for the Houston Chronicle or snapping shots in his studio, professional shutterbug Jimmy Loyd gives classes of up to 50 students the benefit of his 25 years of camera-craft. New pupils will meet in front of Hermann Park’s picturesque Japanese Gardens and take off on a three-hour photo-taking tutorial throughout the bright public space, packed with photo opportunities of efflorescent plants and snoring vampires. With Jimmy Loyd’s cheerful, camera-savvy instruction, Kodachrome junkies will be privy to the secrets of tricky outdoor lighting and manual shooting, helping them aesthetically frame the glorious outdoors into a portable 2D panorama. Point-and-shoot cameras are welcome alongside DSLR ones, as both novice students and advanced snap-shooters can prowl the park using their newfound knowledge, capturing up-close flower studies, playful portraiture, and ominous ampersand-shaped footprints.
