Photographs transport people to an earlier time without the need to master quantum physics or pay the tolls associated with America's wormhole highways. Capture fleeting moments for future examination with today's Groupon to Test of Time Photography in Nashua, New Hampshire. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get an all-day digital-photography boot-camp class for one person (a $250 value).
- For $169, you get an all-day digital-photography boot-camp class for two people (a $500 value).
Classes take place on weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
During all-day boot-camp sessions, pupils marinate minds in seven hours of photo-snapping knowledge to learn how to most artfully imprison subjects in a two-dimensional eternity. The daylong immersions edify eager learners about the subtle art-science of camera wrangling with a combination of classroom lectures, discussion, and guided, hands-on practice, separated into two halves with a 45-minute break for lunch (not included). With a choice of four topics, burgeoning Annie Leibovitzes can get an introductory overview in the Digital Photography Basics course, bolster their value to heads of state with Portrait Photography and Studio Lighting, foster their free-snapping spirits with Creative Photography, or shore up on the basics of studio still life and product photography with Tabletop Product Photography. Students should bring their point-and-shoot or DSLR device and its accompanying instruction guide, as well as their most photogenic sombrero. Pupils leave with class literature to supplement their education independently and may also attend Test of Time’s open, monthly photography-critique sessions to continue to cut their reality-capturing teeth.
Test of Time owner Dan Splaine has more than 30 years of experience as a professional photographer, amassing a portfolio of poignant corporate assignment photos, portraits, and editorial images photographed in dozens of countries. For a decade, he's passed on his memory-capturing know-how to novitiate shutterbugs, slowly training an army of technically proficient photo takers to fight the oncoming contagion of red-eyed, brain-eating party photos.
