A picture is worth a thousand words, which is why a portrait of Lewis and Clark will not suffice for a 5,000-word history thesis. Say what you want to say with today's Groupon to San Francisco Photo Safaris.
$59 for a San Francisco bike photography safari (a $119 value)
San Francisco Photo Safaris' band of professional shutterbugs equips beginner photographers with the basics of operating their own camera and capturing photo-worthy landmarks and scenery during 4.5-hour excursions. After patrons pick up their rental bicycle at Pier 41, attentive instructors run through a 40-minute lesson geared toward camera operation and functions including ISO, shutter speed, and white balance. Photographers can snap shots as they pass Fort Mason, wheel across the Golden Gate bridge, and pedal into Sausalito. During each safari, students receive real-time photography critiques, suggested adjustments for producing vivid prints, and the inspiration to capture lasting images without having to carve them into stone tablets. This Groupon may also be used toward any other local San Francisco photo safari.
