While it might seem like photography opportunities are limited right now, lots of retailers, manufacturers and software producers are opening up their range of courses or offering up advice to photographers so you can still expand your skills at home.

Nikon Photo School

Nikon have opened up their photo school so you can stream all of their courses for free during April. So instead of going stir crazy at home you can dive into courses from photographers like Tamara Lackey, Joe McNally and Reed Hoffmann covering topics including environmental portraiture, discovering macro photography and photographing children and pets.
