Nikon online courses

If you put the impending sense of doom and cabin fever aside, there have been some positives that have come out of this whole lockdown thing. We’re catching up on podcasts, trying out new beauty routines, learning how to exercise in our lounge without kicking the coffee table, and the overachievers amongst us have even been learning new skills.

If photography is something you’re interested then Nikon has got some great news for you. The camera company, which is considered one of the best in the world, has just announced that all of its online courses will be free for April. Whether you’ve always low-key thought of yourself as a young Annie Leibowitz, or just want to take your Instagram up a notch, they’ve got a course for you.
