Though photographs were once considered indisputable proof of past events, contemporary editing software makes it impossible to trust that The Beatles ever crossed a road single file. Learn the art of truth-tailoring with today's Groupon: for $89, you get the four-hour Beginning Photoshop course from McKay Photography Academy (a $599 value). The class will take place at the Ramada Mall of America in Bloomington on Monday, September 12, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. 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.

Learning at McKay Photography Academy is nothing short of wonderful! I have always been interested in photography but never found the right class or environment. Dave and Ally tag-team classes which are very educational, respectful (of knowledge and ability) and fun! I understand how to use my camera now with more confidence and continue to take classes from them to further my ability to understand photography as an art. I just returned from my first tour with MPA to Yellowstone National Park - there are no words to describe the experience except phenominal! I am living my dream learning to create pictures I am proud of!! Thank you MPA!!
