In the early days of photography, slow-functioning cameras forced subjects to stay absolutely still for hours, rendering action shots impossible and subjects' shoes easy prey for hungry grizzly bears. Make shutterbugging simple with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a three-hour digital-photography class (a $150 value) with Marilyn Scavo or Carlos Osorio. Workshops are held at the Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel.
With more than 15 years of experience working as professional photographers, Marilyn Scavo and Carlos Osorio school aspiring Ansel Adamses in the art of the snapshot. Their three-hour beginners' workshops help prospective paparazzi get a firm grip on their digital cameras, first introducing basic camera functions, then discussing proper lighting, digital editing, and photo make up. In addition to learning the basic nuts and bolts of the light box, picture-pupils acquire vibrant new vocabularies, spouting phrases such as "light aperture," "shutter speed," and "work with me, dahling—smile with your feet!" More experienced students can speak to either Marilyn Scavo or Carlos Osorio before reserving their spot in a class to see if they qualify for an advanced workshop.
Shutterbugs must supply their own digital soul-stealers, as well as any additional materials required for advanced classes. Scavo and Osorio provide beginners' workshop materials, plus snacks and drinks to keep students energized and prevent bored mouths from singing show tunes.
