Nature has become photography's most beautiful subject, thanks to its endless quantity, its breathtaking fauna, and a fashion savvy that ensures it won’t wear cheesy sweaters it’ll regret in 10 years. Capture nature as it strolls down the runway with this Groupon: for $49, you get a three-hour hands-on basic digital-photography class from Legacy Studios (a $249 value).
Legacy Studios' master snapper, Barbara Berry, imparts sage camera counsel to fledgling photographers and lends her aperture expertise to photo-safari voyagers. The hands-on workshop covers creative tips and techniques that familiarize owners with their camera as they tackle topics such as shutter speed, composition, and the rule of thirds. Once these principles have been mastered, the hands-on workshop goes one step further to demonstrate how to apply skills toward future photographic endeavors, from casual snapshots to composing a detailed mise en scène for an all-tiger production of Cats. Students take a multitude of shots during the workshop, leaving with artistic images that they can view, display, and edit at home.
Legacy Studios' master photographer, Barbara Berry, heads a team of professional photographers as they exercise their skill in capturing vivid images of children, families, mothers-to-be, and high school seniors.

In addition to photography services, Legacy Studios also offers basic digital-photo workshops, an online course, and Photoshop-training DVDs, which teach clients the ins and outs of retouching images and removing spectral photobombs.
