Like developing superpowers, developing a photograph always starts in a lab under the cover of darkness and ends with a transformative dip in a chemical bath. Discover your extraordinary photographic abilities with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a four-hour photography-related weekend workshop at My Artist Loft in Laguna Beach (a $149 value).
At My Artist Loft, owner Mary Gulino instructs both fledgling and experienced shutterbugs during a workshop that explores the intricacies of manual digital photography, the nuances of outdoor shooting, or the incantations behind photo enhancement. The digital photography workshop arms artists with ample knowledge of how to fidget with a camera to achieve an ideal photograph, regardless of environment, available light, or presence of Peter Lorre's ghost. Those looking to capture candids of Mother Nature will enjoy the walking digital photography workshop, in which students roam beaches such as Shaw’s Cove and Treasure Island Park to learn how to balance visuals, create depth, and unify elements. Learn to manipulate your masterpiece during the Adobe Photoshop Elements workshop, and discover how to improve color and contrast, as well as how to digitally remove vestigial bunny ears.
My Artist Loft welcomes any functioning camera and provides images for the Photoshop tutorial lest students be unwilling to bring in their own archive of kittens restaging famous album covers.
