In learning photography, nothing beats a classroom or workshop experience where you can get hands-on guidance from your mentor or instant tips from your classmates. But if you donâ€™t have the time or the chance to be in a classroom setting, the next best thing is online classes.
Thereâ€™s a website (among hundreds) that walks you through the basics of photography and itâ€™s been there for a number of years now. Itâ€™s also free.
Jodie Costonâ€™s free online photography course offers the reader 10 lessons with sample photos and student discussions. Itâ€™s just one of 10 sites that offer free online photography classes. These 10 are listed here.
Jodieâ€™s online classes are posted at morguefile.com; thereâ€™s nothing morbid about it, the only hint of mortality there is that the site is dedicated to the website authorsâ€™ deceased parents.
