Free Online Photography Classes During Lockdown

Lockdown has been imposed in India for an extended period of time in order to fight against the rapid spread of COVID-19. People are locked in their homes with either no or very less work to do, considering that many of the businesses are not functioning at this point. This has left a lot of free time at the hands of people, allowing them an opportunity to reconnect with themselves, their families and friends or learn a new skill.
Putting an effort to help people use their time productively is Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. that has introduced free online photography classes until the end of this month. The class is said to have distinguished educators starting with laureate of the first edition of the Académie des beaux-arts Photography awardee, Raghu Rai, and many renowned photographers that Nikon has collaborated to encourage people to learn new skills, as they are staying safe at their homes amid the lockdown across the country. Some themes/ topics of the classes include Wedding, Wildlife, Effects of Focal Length, Interior & Architecture, Street, Portrait, Food & Pet Photography, etc.
Each class is hosted by a professional photographer to offer in-depth photography knowledge to help users capture stunning photos and videos. Some of the classes are even followed by a Q&A session to address all the queries and doubts that one may have. The idea of conducting these classes is to not only provide guidance from the experts but also assist the community with some interesting tips and tricks on photography and videography. All the classes will be available through live videos streaming on Nikon’s official handles of Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
Commenting on the initiative, Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director, Nikon India said, “Nikon’s mission has always been to empower the photography community. In light of the continuing outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the country, Nikon India has taken a step to help people enhance their photography skills with classes that are tutored by professional photographers.”
“In the face of this uncertain time, we aim to help individuals stay inspired and engaged through these online classes”, he added.
Furthermore, the users can share their work with the world by posting their picture on Capture with Nikon. It is a platform where one can connect with experts, explore works of others, win exciting prizes and avail great benefits.
