Chimpsy - Washington Park West: $54 for a Two-Hour Outdoor Photography Workshop with Chimpsy ($125 Value)

In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like, regardless of slugging percentage. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a two-hour point-and-shoot, intro to DSLR, or online Photoshop photography workshop from Chimpsy (a $125 value).

Learn to wield the power of the point-and-shoot or DSLR and unloose your inner Ansel Adams with one of Chimpsy’s two-hour workshops. In the first hour, professional wedding and portrait photographer Mark Cafiero or Megan Cooper will provide hands-on tutoring to eager amateurs and advanced hobbyists, covering the general anatomy, functions, and favorite Enlightenment thinkers of their individual cameras. They'll also offer artistic tips and techniques, possibly detailing the ways photographers translate white balance, natural and artificial lighting, and the rule of thirds into expertly poised portraits and stunning ’scapes. Students will get a take-home workbook detailing the contents of the workshop, enabling them to recreate blurry Theremin recital shots as elegant editorial snaps. You can also choose from Intermediate DSLR, Two Hour Portrait and Family Photography, or Photoshop Elements classes.

Cafiero's adept explanations aren't encrypted in jargon or Elvish, so students of all experience levels can easily apply his instruction to the remainder of the camera workshops—an hourlong walking tour of the Denver area that serves as an invigorating photo field trip. A veteran wedding photographer with more than 15 years of service and a former guest speaker at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention in Las Vegas, Cafiero keeps class sizes small (25 students or less) to avail pupils of his laid-back, yet attentive guidance. The lineup of upcoming fall workshops has yet to be determined, so keep an eye on the schedule and call ahead to book your class.
