FREE 10-Week Digitial Photography Course

10wk-photo-courseOn the heels of the free 4-week photography course taught by John Greengo from the PBS series Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge, Creativetechs has confirmed John will return in September to teach an expanded 10-week class.

It has been scheduled on the online calendar, and will continue in the existing 4-week classes’ time slot — Each Wednesday at 1800 GMT (11am PT) — Starting on Sept 2.

So, share and enjoy!

The 4-week class was a lot of fun, but was very basic from a technical standpoint. I expect the 10-week version will have you break out your thinking cap, and take some notes.

DTown TV

DTwon TVI just stumbled across this today (from Matt Kloskowski‘s twitter page of all places)…

DTown TV – The Weekly Show for Nikon DSLR Users With Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski

It’s some spiffy-cool stuff.  Just wanted to pass the link along in case it might be new-to-you-too.

It’s not all Nikon-stuff, by the way.  If you’re a fan of Scott and/or Matt’s blogs/books/videos/etc, you’ll probably enjoy it.  A lot of the tips and all of the demos are on Nikon gear, but they discuss information and gadgets that any photographer can use…
