Photographers preserve subjects' precious memories, abolishing the need to hastily scoop reflections out of nearby fountains. Seek permanence with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a two-hour Photography 101 nature-walk workshop at Nature's Photo Adventures (a $150 value). This Groupon is valid for scheduled classes at the Toronto Zoo, High Park in Toronto, or Lynde Shores in Whitby. Admission to the Toronto Zoo (up to $23) is not included in the cost of the workshop.

David Hemmings and Megan Lorenz, two of Nature's Photo Adventure's resident shutterbugs, guide camera clickers of any skill level on outdoor journeys to learn the basics of photographing birds, wildlife, and scenic landscapes. Classes of 8–20 students can focus their lenses on the reflective waters of High Park's lakefront, the exotic inhabitants at the Toronto Zoo, or close up shots of insects as they snorkel across the Lynde Shores' marsh wetlands. To begin two-hour treks, pupils absorb the basics of shutter speed, aperture settings, and ISO configurations. Camera profs then teach more in-depth techniques such as understanding histograms and how to properly compose a photo while paying attention to lighting. Meanwhile, the professional photographers occasionally step into the frame and review images with the group. Students should bring a notebook and must provide their own digital SLR, point-and-shoot digital camera, or Baroque portrait painter.

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.

Thanks for the excellent outing. I learned a great deal in a short time. You were incredibly classy to take this Groupon at full value after expiration, too.
