Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a photography workshop with John Ater / Photographer (a $150 value) .
Cruise around the city while brushing up on basic camera skills and honing an eye for composition during a two-hour photography workshop led by professional photon-wrangler John Ater, who has shot for the likes of Modern Luxury magazine and Dillard's. The workshop requires snap-happy shutterbugs to bring their own personal cameras, which may include traditional point-and-shooters, digital SLRs, or parlor-sized camerae obscurae. During the course of the photo trek, students are guided through the Mission, the Castro, the Embarcadero, or Chinatown, so comfortable clothes, shoes, and tracking devices are highly suggested. Check out the FAQs and view the current schedule and sign up for the workshop online.
