Nikon Announces Free Educational Video Series
by Laura Hicks -  3/11/2014

Ever wondered, "How did they make that image?" Nikon's betting you have and they are releasing a new set of educational videos.  These videos are short, 3 minute clips that give you a brief overview of a topic. 

Joe McNally starts off this series with, "Nikon Behind the Scenes: Light It Up with Joe McNally." Joe shows users how to use available light and Speedlights to get a desired photographic effect. His series is five videos in all. He shows us how to make the most of lighting situation. 

"Nikon Behind the Scenes: High Altitude Adventure with Corey Rich," is the next set of videos in the series. They will show Corey's techniques for shooting portraits, time lapse, action stills and video while high in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

The last sets of videos are from Tamara Lackey. Her series is titled, "Nikon Behind the Scenes: All in the Family with Tamara Lackey." Tamera is well known in the professional photography circles for her fantastic family photography. In this series, she shares her secrets to great portraiture. I have seen Tamera speak at an international photography convention and I really liked her and her photographic methods. If you are interested in family photography this will be a good series to watch. 

Below is the schedule for the upcoming videos.
