So now we’re going to take some time out to offer some good news about Nikon – as well as for the rest of us.

Earlier this year, the Nikon School Online offered free online courses to help people trapped at home because of the onset of the pandemic.

Now they’re doing it again for the end of the year holiday season.

From Nikon Rumors:

It’s the season for giving, and Nikon is happy to announce that for a limited time, its popular Nikon School Online classes will be available free of charge starting today through the end of the year. From now until December 31, anyone can sharpen their photography skills at home with Nikon’s entertaining and engaging classes taught by world-class Nikon Ambassadors and photographers. A wide range of classes are available, including an all-new class for creating memorable holiday photos and videos, helping users step up their creativity just in time for the most festive time of the year.”

One class might be of particular interest to people that want to up their game this season just in time for holiday photos: “Better Holiday Photos with Nikon Ambassadors.”

This class “…features an all-star cast of Nikon’s top creators, sharing their unique tips and creative techniques for getting in the holiday spirit and capturing one-of-a-kind photos and videos to share with family and friends. Learn how to create holiday cards that stand out, master basic lighting for the best portraits, capture stunning food photography, perfectly pose as a couple or family and see how simple it is to add festive and creative flair to your photos.”

Doesn’t sound like a bad deal to us at all.
