The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, and second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Improve the honest way with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a four-hour digital-photography workshop and a two-hour photo safari from Capturing True Emotion (a $450 value). The workshops and safaris are available on the following days: June 15, July 9, July 30, August 13, and August 27. Held at the Newport Beach Marriott, workshops last from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and are followed by safaris from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Led by lens legend Lia Segerblom, a dedicated portrait and wedding photographer, Capturing True Emotion workshops (a $250 value) provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization, giving participants complete dominion over all their camera settings. During four hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, students learn how to control depth of field by adjusting the aperture, how to compose a family portrait, how to use alternative angles to avoid red eye, and how much lighting to use when spotting yeti at the local laundromat.
Capturing True Emotion’s two-hour photo safari (a $200 value) takes pupils on a picturesque voyage, offering camera bearers several opportunities to put their newly acquired shutter-speed skills to good use. Students can take snapshots of colorful foliage, frolicking recreationalists, and the wildlife and merpeople that leap out of nearby Newport Bay.
