Make that happy snap, really snap
Nikon is still doing wonderful photography training, even in the self-isolation days. So admit it, you are bored and you have not touched your camera for years. We have become phone snappers! Well, take this time to rebuild your skills and improve your photographic pizazz.
And guess what, it is National Photo Month. So throughout May, Nikon School has launched online. And they are offering a range of online classes to inspire photographers to get creative. All levels of photographers, from aspiring to seasoned pros, have the chance to upskill from the comfort of their own home.
This is your chance to spend time teaching your children the art of photography, reskill and find new work in the photography world, or just create a stunning photo as art for your wall.
To celebrate National Photo Month and the launch, you may also be interested in the below top tips available from leading Nikon School lecturers.
