Whether or not you own a Nikon camera, the Nikon School has a pretty established name as a go-to online resource for learning the ins and outs of some of our field’s finer points. It’s also going to be free this month for those of you that have always wanted to check it out.

Why? Well, think of it as a bit of goodwill from the Japanese optics giant as most of the world stays at home under government-mandated lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’ve got some pretty solid videos on tap here, too, including:

“Creator’s Mindset: Creating Video Content with Z 50 with Kitty Peters
Photographing Children and Pets with Tamara Lackey
Getting Started with Your Nikon DSLR
Hands-on with SB-5000 Speedlight with Joe McNally
Fundamentals of Photography with Reed Hoffmann
Environmental Portraiture with Joey Terrill
The Art of Making Music Videos with Chris Hershman
Beyond the Fundamentals of Photography with Reed Hoffman
Discovering Macro Photography with Joey Terrill
Exploring Dynamic Landscape Photography with Taylor Glenn”

As you have probably noticed in our reporting for this website, the COVID-19 pandemic is not only causing major disruptions in other areas of the economy but also the photography industry as well.

Even so, some companies like Canon and Fujifilm have been called into the fight thanks to their medical subsidiaries. Needless to say, it has been a wild time so we’re thankful that Nikon is trying to give some of us an escape from it all.

What do you think? Do the Nikon School videos sound like something you would be interested in watching?

Are you currently under lockdown due to the novel coronavirus outbreak? How are you passing the time?
