A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but you can’t change the trial memories to make it so you were the one with the gavel and the wig. Let your memories embellish the past, but capture the truth for your records with today’s Groupon for a five-hour digital-photography workshop from Texas Photographic Workshops at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Choose between the following options:

  • For $49, you get admission to the Saturday, February 18 workshop (a $129 value).
  • For $49, you get admission to the Saturday, March 3 workshop (a $129 value).<p>

Texas Photographic Workshops’ experienced photo gurus Doug Box and Randy Kerr impart practical photo skills to curious shutterbugs during seminars held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The hands-on session immerses beginner and intermediate students in the inner workings of their digital cameras, showing them how to manipulate menu settings, f-stops, and shutter speed. The lessons also cultivate artistic development by spending time on what makes a good composition, in addition to strategies for when to use a flash and how to get the family dog to juggle for the camera. Questions are encouraged, and a 90-minute lunch break at noon encourages students to rest their minds, to practice, and to mingle with their peers amid lush garden scenery. After the workshops, pupils can use their new knowledge to practice outside and capture shots of native Texan flora.

Doug Box, author of myriad photography-technique books, is one of 13 Kodak mentors and sits on the board for Professional Photographers of America. His coteacher, Randy Kerr, heads World Photographic, which uses photography as a vehicle for illuminating humanitarian and environmental topics. Both men have been teaching photography classes for years, and can help amateurs take photos that capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently than papier-mâché sculptures.

Great class, great information, easy to follow and just alot of fun. I hope I can attend more workshops. I would never have been able to attend or afford this workshop had it not been for groupon. Maybe offer workshops that focus on portrait, landscape or sports photography. Don't forget Groupon!! :) Thanks again for wanting to teach others your wonderful skills. Thanks

This was one of the best workshops I have ever attended. After the class, I purchased a new DSLR camera, and am attending a light workshop by Randy next week. Thanks so much for all of the information and enthusiasm!
