So, I’m not quite done with the free photography links.
Again, specifically, links to a free photography course. This was shared by PetaPixel last month, but it’s so good, I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it.
MIT has established a free learning annex on-line which they call “MIT OpenCourseWare”. Through this program, they offer all kinds of classes on a wide range of topics, all based on classes taught at MIT at one time or another, of course. I was surprised to see, again, thanks to PetaPixel, that MIT was offering a course on Documentary Photography and Photojournalism. According to the class description, this is “…an introduction to the great tradition of documentary photography. Students learn to see the world around them in a new way and produce a documentary project. The course requires reading and writing about photography, as well as doing it on a regular basis. The class emphasis is on thinking about why people photograph, what photographs do and do not mean to us, and on doing documentary work, on telling stories with photographs. ”
They note that students are expected to already know basic photography and that this course should not be considered a “beginner’s class”. I don’t know when I’ll get to it, because I just changed jobs, but I really look forward to digging into this class!
But, you don’t need to way for me! Get started right away!
