The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Snap like a champ with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two photography classes from Paul D. Manke Photography (a $30 value). This Groupon is not valid for classes held at the Botanical Gardens or the RR Museum. Students must bring their own cameras.
Professional photographer Paul D. Manke instructs novice to advanced shot-snappers in the finer points of memory capture during two-hour evening photography classes. Both the Intro to Compact Camera and Intro to SLR sessions take place in the classroom and familiarize students with camera basics, including navigating the menu, downloading images, and using the camera to capture irrefutable proof that zorses exist. Level-two compact-camera and SLR courses delve into hands-on photography and snapping pictures using the manual setting. A special night class teaches students to take photos in the dark, and advanced camera clutchers in the SLR #3 class hone sophisticated skills such as quick exposure reading and setting.
