Some nights are so much fun they seem to go by in a blur -- and photos from those evenings often support that notion. Snap out of a hazy-photo habit with today's deal from Larry Hanna Photography: Pay $48 (regularly $99) for a three-hour Digital Single Reflex Lens Camera Basics photography workshop. Or, for $75 (regularly $150), get two three-hour Photoshop CS5 or Photoshop Elements 10 classes.
An award-winning photographer with more than 35 years behind the lens, Mr. Hanna will guide you through your camera's controls so that you can capture a scene like a professional. As you get comfortable with your DSLR (or point-and-shoot with manual mode functionality), you'll learn the basics of composition -- including a lesson on using your flash -- to take your albums from ho-hum to heavenly. For a beginner's education on resizing, cropping, and retouching, as well as using tools like the Clone Stamp and Lasso, join the CS5 classes; or, sign up for the Elements workshop to get hands-on experience fixing color problems, working with Adobe Camera Raw, and more. At the end of your course, scheduled afternoons and evenings and held at the Tahiti Village Resort, you'll walk away with the skills to capture a clearer picture of your next wild night.
