Classes take place at Bob Duncan Center in Arlington.

McKay Photography Academy trains eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine during any one of its classes. The course instructs 1,000-word wannabes in the relatively new fine art of digital photography, helping camera clutchers understand the intricacies of their instruments and showing them how to utilize a device's capabilities to produce the desired effects.

David and Ally McKay, an award-winning duo recognized by Professional Photographers of America, guide the class through basics such as manual settings, composition, and downloading before progressing to more advanced aspects, such as lenses and perspective, exposure control, shutter speeds, and hosting parties in abandoned darkrooms. In addition to the $25 voucher from One Click Pix, Groupon holders will also receive a $25 voucher from Canvas by Blossom.

During the beginning Photoshop course, award-winning photographer and esteemed instructor Jeffrey Dachowski shows digital sharpshooters how to enhance their images with the dynamic power of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Working with the program (not included) on his or her own computer, each student will glean expert tips in a range of editing basics, such as cropping, color adjustment, and playing with light levels. Polish portraits of loved ones with subtle teeth whitening and wrinkle reduction, or enhance the drama of Bigfoot photos through precise contrast-ratio adjustments around his big, manicured toes. Once photos are perfected, the cursor conjuror teaches students how to fashion eye-catching creations such as custom invitations, creative collages, and politically subversive lolcats.

McKay Photography Academy

Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones. They share these skills during classes at McKay Photography Academy, where they train eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine. Their classes help aspiring photographers progress from neophytes to seasoned pros. When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; the Lincoln Memorial of Washington, DC; or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.

I loved my two day class and learned so much about my camera. The class was fun and the Dave and ally were amazing; they were both very friendly and had great knowledge. I would love to talk more classes with them in the future.
