What You'll Get
Creating a masterwork of photographic art can be similar to wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of photographic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a four-hour digital photography workshop, plus a two-hour interactive photo safari from Val Westover Photography (a $450 total value). This Groupon is good for the “Capturing True Emotion” workshop, which is currently scheduled at least once a month from November through February 7th, 2011. Workshops take place at Westfield Shopping Center and run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; photo safaris take place from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Groupon holders may split the class and safari portions between two dates or combine them back-to-back on the same day. For complete schedule info, check the sidebar to the right.
The “Capturing True Emotion” workshop is driven by the dynamic duo of Val Westover, a dedicated author and portrait photographer, and Stephanie Adriana, an author and award-winning fine-art photographer. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversized head, the two provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization.
During your four hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, you’ll learn how to control depth of field by adjusting the aperture, strategies for artful lighting, how to compose a family portrait so that there’s not always a burning zeppelin in the background, how to avoid red eyes using alternative angles, and more. After the workshop, you’ll depart with Val Westover’s book, A Photographer’s Guide to Success, which comes bound tightly with tips, tricks, practice exercises, reference material, and glue.
Whether you’re a seasoned sniper with your shuttered shooter or looking to better know a birthday gift, Val Westover Photography’s four-hour session in the photo dojo will have your camera-op chops in top shape, and the two-hour interactive photo safari gives you a chance to put recently acquired skills to work in the gritty real-world trenches, which offer numerous chances to capture baby lizards and frolicking salespeople. Call to schedule your workshop.
Val Westover photographer Stephanie Adriana won the prestigious Equine Photo of the Year from Cowboys and Indians magazine for her photo of stampeding horses, as noted in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
