Today’s Groupon is valid for the scavenger hunt on Saturday, October 1 or Sunday, October 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Split Seconds Photography’s instructors teach techniques on both DSLR and point-and-shoot cameras to photographers of all skill levels before sending them outdoors to test their artistic skills. The workshop lasts two hours and includes ample opportunities for participants to ask questions and show off their camera’s ability to bark on command. Then, up to 200 scavengers depart from the studio with a list of 10 photographs they must take to complete the hunt. Each objective involves the techniques taught during the workshop and challenges shutterbugs to capture sites in historic James Bay, along the waterfront, and across Beacon Hill Park. Camera experts tag along to dish out advice and guide students with hands-on tutoring. After hunts, participants upload their captured moments to a gallery and determine the day’s best photos. Top camera-clickers in each category take home prizes such as free photography workshops and bear-photography trips, and the photographer with the most votes can proudly wear an Apple iPad 2 around their neck in victory.
Pupils continue their studies with an ebook copy of Digital Workflow for the Working Photographer by Peter Llewellyn, one of Split Seconds Photography’s founding members. Three 8”x10” prints shimmy into frames to solidify memories of the photo challenges. During the hunt, participants can break for lunch in one of the area’s many restaurants.
