Photographers use fancy terms, such as shutter speed, metering, and clicky metal box that makes time be still. Let pros be pros with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $24 for a two-hour photo walk led by instructors (a $49 value)
- $39 for a two-hour photo walk for two (a $98 value)
- $49 for a three-hour introduction-to-photography boot camp and a two-hour photo walk (a $99 value)
Participants take in the view from the Boylan Bridge while learning from experienced instructors. The boot camp focuses on the theory and practice of picture taking, including photo composition and perspective and camera settings such as ISO, f-stop, shutter speed, and exposure. After breaking for lunch, groups join up with those attending only the photo walk, venturing along the bridge to put photographic skills to use with the cameras and manuals students have brought along. Point-and-shoot cameras are welcome, as are more complex SLR cameras. Boot camps are scheduled from 9 a.m. until noon; photo walks start at 1 p.m. See the website for available boot camp dates.
The House of NyghtFalcon
Coming to photography after an eclectic career that has seen him earn a PhD in biblical theology and win a Computerworld Smithsonian medal for contributions to technology, Falcon—The House of NyghtFalcon's founder and head photographer—specializes in emotionally powerful, naturally lit photos that reveal unseen perspectives in familiar sights. His handpicked photographic associates undergo three years of apprenticeship before donning the mantle of full partner. Basic and advanced seminars mix photographic theory with hands-on learning, teaching students how to master cameras' arcane functions, frame shots, and determine the shutter speed at which time folds back in on itself.
