Wildlife photography captures rare moments typically unseen by human eyes, such as prairie-dog stampedes and buffalo town-hall meetings. Record democracy in its most natural habitat with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a Photography 101 nature-walk workshop from Nature's Photo Adventures (a $150 value), redeemable at different local conservation centres and parks in the Greater Toronto area. Recent tours have explored the woodsy depths of Wye Marsh in Midland, Ontario.

During Nature's Photo Adventures' workshops, students learn the basics of photographing birds and nature. A two-hour photo walk, led by experienced wildlife photographers such as David Hemmings and Megan Lorenz, begins by covering shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Students also learn how to properly read their light, pixel, and name in hieroglyphics. Still-film neophytes discuss basics of image composition and lighting backgrounds before heading outside to put theory to practice and squirrel-whispering skills to use amid the majesty of protected wilderness. Participants may choose their workshop times from the scheduled dates listed on the Nature's Photo Adventures website.

Natures Photo Adventures

At Natures Photo Adventures, professional photographers—some of whom have seen their work published on the covers of Audobon Magazine, National Geographic, and Newsweek—guide students of all skill levels on outdoor journeys to learn the essential techniques of photographing wildlife and scenic landscapes. At locales such as High Park's lakefront or the Toronto Zoo, students learn to focus lenses on reflective waters and exotic animals. They also learn the basics of shutter speed, aperture settings, and ISO configurations as they seek out close-up shots of insects snorkeling across the Lynde Shores marsh wetlands. Along with these rudimentary skills, photo tours teach students how to read histograms and properly compose photographs with natural lighting. Students should bring a notebook and must provide their own digital SLR, point-and-shoot digital camera, or Baroque portrait painter.
