Digital technology has allowed for the introduction of many new art forms, just as Leonardo da Vinci once predicted on his blog. Upload a masterpiece with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 2.5-hour beginners digital-photography workshop from Leigh Preuss Photography (a $110 value). Classes take place weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Experienced memory catcher Leigh Preuss reveals the mysteries and secrets of digital photography in her 2.5-hour beginners workshop. Students commence their photographic journey by learning the ins and outs of the camera itself, exploring the many settings, switching into manual focus mode, and discovering which lenses are best for family portraits and which are best for stuffed-animal glamour shots. Burgeoning photographers hone fundamental skills of composition and lighting as they master the rule of thirds and abolish red eye forever. After a session of hands-on practice, Leigh answers individual questions, addresses editing basics, and divulges the secrets to creating inspired images, such as abandoning "Cheese!" in favor of "Run for your life; bear attack!" Leigh also discounts her portrait sitting fee for all students by 50%, so aspiring artists can see the workshop's lessons put to use.

Leigh Preuss Photography

Inside her studio, photographer Leighanne Preuss does more than just take pictures. She makes them—or rather, builds them—by piecing together film cameras by hand. In combination with her BFA in fine-art photography, this deep appreciation of the photographic process plays a big role in shaping her introductory workshops. In fact, Leighanne often encourages students to discard automatic settings in favor of making manual adjustments of exposure time, lenses, and fake mustaches. Outside the classroom, Preuss practices what she preaches, snapping high-quality footage of families, kids, and weddings.
