Now is a great time to explore a new hobby or sharpen existing skills
Editor’s take: Knowing how to adjust lighting, tweak settings and properly compose a shot are useful skills for anyone, not just a pro photographer or someone using a Nikon-branded camera. Given how far along mobile camera technology has come in just a few short years, it’s now possible to get stunning shots with modern smartphone cameras when taking manual control of them.
Nikon was among the first companies to make its online photography classes available for free at the onset of the pandemic. For the month of April, nearly a dozen Nikon School Online courses ranging in length from about 15 minutes to over an hour were available to view absolutely free.
Now, the offer is back for the holidays.
There’s even a course on how to make music videos led by Chicago-based filmmaker Chris Hershman.
Best yet, owning a Nikon camera or even a standalone digital camera in general isn’t a prerequisite.
