Those in self-quarantine with not many things to do may want to pick up some new skills in photography offered by Tokyo-based optics and imaging products corporation Nikon.
Throughout April, Nikon is offering free online photography courses in the form of 15 to 60 minutes videos.
“As we navigate through these challenging times together, photography is essential because it has the power to inspire, and remind us of the importance of the human connection as we isolate and distance ourselves," Jay Vannatter, executive vice president at Nikon told cnet.com. "At Nikon, we remain committed to empowering storytellers of all levels, and right now there are many stories to tell.”
Among the classes, there are videos for beginners who have just started using their DSLRs. There are also instructive videos for specialists such as music video creators, environmental photographers, and those who want to cherish cheerful moments with their children and pets. Each video is hosted by professional photographers with their own specialty.
These videos are usually only accessible for paid subscribers, with tuition normally priced between US$15 to $50.
To join the class, website visitors are only required to submit their name and email before streaming the videos. (gis/kes)
