Good photographs can be ruined by redeye, when the bright light of the flash causes eyeballs to protect themselves by turning completely around and exposing their brain cords. Learn the tricks of the trade with this Groupon.
$53 for a four-hour beginner digital-photography workshop ($250 value)
Workshops begin in a classroom setting, where students brandish their own point-and-shoot or SLR cameras to receive three hours of basic or intermediate instruction. Photographer Steve Yanni guides pupils through topics including aperture, shutter speed, and composition before leading groups to an onsite shooting location around Orlando, where they’ll put their skills to the test for one hour, snapping shots in indoor and outdoor lighting. Classes are available every month—participants call to reserve a space.
Steve Yanni first felt the inexorable pull of photography more than 20 years ago, when he picked up a camera and started snapping photos as a hobby. Since then, Steve has ceded to his artistic calling, dedicating his career to capturing special events, family portraits, and sensual boudoir shots, as well as imparting his knowledge upon fledgling shutterbugs during instructive workshops. The bridal specialist enlists a team of talented photogs to help him at events, ensuring that no special moment goes undocumented, from the cutting of the cake to the swallowing of the ceremonial flaming sword.
