Taking a great photo means being in the right place at the right time, which means camping out in front of Mt. Rushmore at 3:47 p.m. MST when a gorilla skis down Washington's nose. Learn when to shoot with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a photography basics workshop from Robert DiTommaso Photography (a $149 value). This Groupon is valid for a Saturday workshop on February 4, February 11, or March 3.
Drawing from more than 30 years of photography experience, Robert DiTommaso helps amateurs build their snapshot skill set with six-hour camera workshops. Taking place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the workshop's lengthy running time gives students plenty of opportunity to ask questions as the instructor conducts interactive lectures on camera function and creative thinking, with an hour break to eat lunch or learn how to say "cheese" in 30 languages. As the workshop progresses, students slowly study all of their camera's complex functions, giving them the confidence to manipulate exposure control and composition. Space is limited for workshops, so be sure to make a reservation in advance.
Robert DiTommaso Photography
After working for 24 years at what he calls a "real" job, Bob DiTommaso left the office environment to pursue his passion: photography. It wasn't an easy switch—his career move required long hours and lots of hard work—but Bob says he wouldn't change a thing. The effort paid off in the end, when he opened his own studio, Robert DiTommaso Photography.
Bob works mainly in family and children's photography, but his interests run the gamut from portraits to landscape and sports photography. Regardless of subject, the seasoned shutterbug brings a keen eye for capturing the ineffable in each and every shoot. And he prints his images in-house on a wide-format professional ink-jet printer.
When he's not taking great photos, Bob is teaching others to do so during photography workshops that take place in-studio or on-location. He even leads photography safaris, multi-day trips that trek through national parks and other breathtaking locales in search of the perfect shot of Bigfoot buying deodorant.
