Today’s Groupon from Pikto, located in the historic Distillery District, helps ensure overall fitness behind the lens. Choose between basic digital photography class options for either point-and-shoot or DSLR camera instruction, with a choice of 12 dates for each class. Each five-hour class holds 15 students, meets for one day, and includes a 30-minute lunch break (lunch is not provided).

For $59, you get a Digital Photography for Beginners class (a $155 value), intended for point-and-shoot cameras. Each class meets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Choose from 12 dates.

For $59, you get an Introduction to Digital Photography for DSLR Users class (a $155 value). Each class meets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Choose from 12 dates.

Learn how to take eye-robbing photos using any kind of digital camera with instruction from Pikto’s professional photographers. The Digital Photography for Beginners class gives point-and-shoot camera wielders the chance to snap to their potential. Budding Ansel Adamses will learn the basics of photographic composition, how to masterfully operate the camera, and how to survive in the wilderness with only a camera and a potato. File types, aperture, shutter speed, and innovative ways to use your camera’s flash will all be covered, imbuing students with the know-how for producing top-quality photos of any subject.

Should a limited skill set make your digital single-lens reflex camera feel heavier in your hand than a bag of worries, escort it to the Introduction to Digital Photography for DSLR Users class, where all the possibilities of your camera’s knobs and menus will be explored. In five hours, you’ll learn about lenses, flash use, the uses of file formats such as .RAW and .JPG, how to artfully manage depth-of-field in your images, and more. Before long you’ll be composing professional-looking shots without having to draw them yourself.

Today’s Groupon: for $146, you get six pulsed-light removal treatments for spider veins, sunspots, or other pigmented lesions (a $1,440 value) at Sitamaa Day Spa, located downtown in the Manulife Centre.

Named for the Hindu goddess Sita, Sitamaa Day Spa offers state-of-the-art medical and aesthetic treatments in a peaceful, nurturing environment. During the non-invasive, 25-minute pigmentation removal procedure, a SharpLight laser breaks down discoloured tissue into tiny particles that are shed within one to two weeks with natural exfoliation and persistent nagging. Since the procedure has little to no downtime, clients can leave immediately afterwards to stroll through the nearby galleries and boutiques of stylish Bloor-Yorkville. Treatments can focus on up to four areas at one appointment, and clients will usually see results after three to six sessions. Sitamaa Day Spa’s décor, like its services, fuse ancient wisdom with modern style—clients check in at a sleek, modern reception area accented by an ornately carved antique gate, next to a row of steam-powered ray guns and a holographic cotton gin.

Speed-reading techniques are ideal for business professionals, overworked students, and truckers seeking to finish the latest Danielle Steel novel while still getting their shipment in on time. Kick-start your word-per-minute consumption and give literature-loving lightning a rapid-fire run for its money with Iris’s speed-reading skill sets.
