Before modern photography, portrait-seeking subjects would cover themselves in year-end financial figures to meet the requirements for being Xeroxed. Capture more accurate self-copies with today’s Groupon to Palm Beach Photographic Centre.

Palm Beach Photographic Centre helps shutter-shy novices become confident digital camera users in comprehensive hands-on workshops. During the point-and-shoot workshop, a photo-savvy member of the Centre’s staff whisks students through informative tutorials on photography with a common digital camera. A dozen workshop participants unlock the secrets of navigating camera features such as auto-zoom and built-in paintball gun as their sage instructor explains the elements of basic composition, the ABCs of pixel resolution, and the proper use of digital media and storage devices in the three-hour lecture seminar.

Alternatively, the Intro to Digital Cameras SLR workshop whisks novice shutterbugs on a seven-hour spree, including a one-hour lunch break, through the lens-driven world of SLR digital photography. Each workshop addresses both camera and computer skills, instructing photo trainees in the use of their camera’s features, file formats such as RAW files, and proper set-up for various shooting situations. The workshop also covers the computer aspects of digital photography, such as downloading images, properly preparing image files for email and the Web, and digitally replacing red eyes with pinwheel eyes. Palm Beach Photographic Centre encourages participants who own a camera to bring it with them, along with its manual, but cameras can also be rented for an additional fee.

Palm Beach Photographic Centre

A nonprofit organization dedicated to the visual arts, Palm Beach Photographic Centre has kept citizens abreast of ever-evolving aesthetics since it was incorporated in 1985. Recently settled into their brand-new facility in the City Hall complex, guest instructors including Robert Farber, Ross Whitaker, and Laurence Gartel hold more than 300 photography workshops every year. The in-house staff teaches other classes, with curricula ranging from Photoshop tutorials to technology-oriented lectures to far-flung traveling workshops in such locales as Peru, Bali, and the mirror city located beneath Lake Mangonia. Members earn discounts on all of these opportunities, receive invitations to exclusive events, and get the chance to be displayed in the annual INFOCUS juried exhibition.
