Digital cameras may have cut down significantly on thumb shots and close-ups of purse interiors, but it takes skill to shoot frame-worthy portraits. With today's deal from Balanced Exposure in Schaumburg, spend $50 (regularly $225) and get a four-hour DSLR Photo Essentials photography class and learn how to snap one-of-a-kind images.
This intensive four-hour class is tailored to suit photographers looking to learn how to transition from shooting in automatic mode to manual and other more advanced shooting modes. Bring your DSLR or advanced hybrid camera and learn how to operate it like a pro, mastering your camera's settings and understanding how to optimize each shot. The easy-going atmosphere will be a relief if you don't understand technical camera lingo, and you'll likely want to return for more helpful and informative sessions -- so you can start shooting portraits of something other than the inside of your bag.
