Digital Learning Center

Digital cameras are replacing film cameras making photography a less expensive art form and hobby which in turn leads to more students experimenting with photography. Nikon, one of the most popular names in optics and cameras, has created the Nikon Digital Learning Center to help students develop their digital photography skills. The Digital Learning Center features how-to articles from professional photographers, a glossary of terms, and how-to tips and articles specific various photography genres.

Applications for Education
The Nikon Digital Learning Center is a nice new resource to compliment an art course. As photography and film become a more common element in presentations and assessments improving those images will become more important to some students and teachers. The Digital Learning Center is a place where non-art teachers can find some quick tips to help their students improve the visual elements of a presentation.
