Before quick-snapping cameras were invented, portrait subjects had to patiently hum "cheese" for hours on end, inevitably losing their voices and adopting the dour expressions that characterize the 1870s. Appreciate the brevity of modern technology with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a three-hour Learn to Photograph Your Kids class from Johnstone Studios (a $125 value). Choose from the following dates:

  • Tuesday, September 20, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Wednesday, September 28, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, October 8, from 9 a.m. to noon
  • Sunday, October 16, from 9 a.m. to noon
  • Wednesday, October 26, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

All classes will take place at the Montrêux Golf and Country Club, a golf-course community located between Reno and Lake Tahoe.

Johnstone Studios' Tourine and Trevor Johnstone, whose images have been featured on a Today show segment, share their know-how during hands-on digital-camera classes that take laymen beyond basic point-and-shoot techniques. Aspiring shutterbugs learn to how to adjust their settings, how to shoot in both low and bright lighting, and how to capture motion at athletic events or jenga tournaments. Tourine and Trevor also dish tips on posing kids and framing snapshots. The photogs then send parents off with handouts laden with additional advice, including the important trick for occupying easily distracted bambinos—giving them jars of peanut butter.

Customer Reviews

The photography class they offered was very informational. I learned a lot about portrait photography. I would definitely go to another class offered by them and will recommend them to friends.
