A good portrait captures the dignity and kindness of the sitter and releases them sportingly back into the wild. Hone your liberty-loving lens skills with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one 120-minute photography class and 40% off professional portraits from Petruzzo Photography (a $95 value). Classes are scheduled in Bowie, Kettering, and Alexandria, but are subject to change because of inclement weather.
While William Petruzzo didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean he won't someday. Put his visual skills and time-control talents to the test with his two-hour class coaching newcomers on how to get the most out of photographic sessions. The session will cover basic camera exposures, composition, and lighting, all necessary to flatteringly display captured souls. Attendees must bring their own camera, but drinks and snacks will be provided to nourish frame-framing minds and energize photo-snapping fingers.
Next, watch the master in action as you pose for professional portraits snapped by William Petruzzo himself. His skilled eye can coax natural smiles out of your newborn, soon-to-be mom, high-school senior, pets, or family. Sit a session to commemorate the joys of engagement and marriage, or the promise of potential in a postgraduation smile before heading off to your new job as a marine biographer. Besides capturing your soul in an easily portable format, photographic portraiture is a terrific way to reveal your best side in a controlled scenario and ensure that you'll have at least one Facebook photo of yourself in which you're not hoisting a red plastic cup.
