A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but none of it is open for interpretation. Share the burden every camera must carry with today's Groupon: for $49, you get an amateur-photographer workshop from PBJ Candids Photography (a $99 value). Choose from workshops running Sundays between July 10 and August 14 in Echo Park. Beginner workshops start at 11 a.m., and the more advanced workshop starts at 1 p.m. after July 17. Students must bring a DSLR; cameras are not provided for either class.

With photography published in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, PBJ Candids' Jennifer Emery has more than 20 years of frame-freezing experience. During the approximately two-hour amateur-photographer workshop, this skilled shutterbug will pass on her camera-wielding tutelage. Pupils learn through hands-on lessons, practicing shutter-snapping skills with a model present during the workshop (a $10 model fee due the day of the class is not included with today's deal). The beginner session covers basic operation of the camera's tools⎯f-stops, shutter speed, exposure, and depth of field⎯while the advanced workshop covers composition, cropping, and lighting, allowing students to capture self-portraits that can be framed and hung on walls or glued to cereal boxes so that people will think you're an Olympic athlete.

Jennifer was extremely friendly, prompt, knowledgeable and professional. She definitely has a great eye and was able to capture my essence quickly and make my pictures stand out, something that is very important when trying to catch the eye of a casting director. I know these headshots will get me called in for auditions! I would absolutely recommend her and plan on using her again.
