Photography records the moments of life in a way that's more long lasting and accurate than drawing birthday portraits or crafting ice sculptures to commemorate beach parties. Learn how to create simple keepsakes with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a two-hour Photography 101: Foundations or Photography 201: Advance class (a $200 value) at Thrive Photography.

Thrive Photography's experienced light wranglers impart hard-won camera-wielding wisdom to amateur shutterbugs in two-hour photography classes. During the Photography 101: Foundations course, pupils learn the fundamental principles of digital camera use as well as basic precepts of photo composition, usage of light, film exposure, and how to hypnotize young subjects with stuffed animals. More experienced snappers can enlist in the Photography 201: Advance class for in-depth advice on how to expose film in a manual setting, meter, handle white balance, and manage the tempestuous love triangle between aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to ensure cameras let in optimal levels of light.

Consistently small class sizes grant pupils unfettered access to instructors’ expertise, and students receive a copy of the course notes to reinforce in-class learning and provide a resource for future reference. Patrons need only bring their digital camera and most practiced modeling poses to the sessions, the times for which can be found beneath Thrive’s course descriptions on the website.

Julie Cannon credits her success in capturing in-the-moment shots of fiancés, families, and furry friends to the level of comfort she can achieve with her subjects. “I place value on small group settings, and getting to know people to their core,” the dedicated photographer says. This open-hearted approach to picture taking has served her well since her recent move to Nashville, where Julie continues to forge warm relationships as she captures simple, candid moments in vivid color. In addition to candid and posed portraiture, Julie runs introductory and advanced classes for those who'd like to preserve some memories of their own without relying on cumbersome full-body stencils.

Customer Reviews

I took the class to improve my own photography so I wouldn't necessarily go back to them for pictures.But, I enjoyed the classs very much and learned more about my camera. Thanks
