FREE to Stream (starts Fri 12pm ET): 24-hour “Fundamentals of Photography” CL class

If you have nothing scheduled for the next 24 hours or so, the headliner of the Friday Creative LIVE ON-AIR classes is a 24+ hour long “Fundamentals of Photography” class with John Greengo, the guy who makes their “Fast Start” camera-guide classes. This is not just a photography-101, it covers beginners to advanced topics.

Greegon’s teaching style is even-keeled and matter-of-fact, I’ve watched four of the always-streaming teaser-chapters for this class. This starts on Friday at 12pm eastern and ends on Saturday at 11:45am ET. Since this class is just over 24 hours long, it will not repeat. It will not even finish 🙂

But wait, there’s more. On Saturday at 12pm ET there’s a 7.5 hour long “Photography 101” class free-streaming at CL, and this one is by SLR Lounge, a more beginner course as the name suggests, and a more stylized approach. Since it’s under 8 hours, it will repeat three times during the 24 hour window…
