This $40 photography course bundle is a steal

(BUSINESS MARKETING) If you’re looking to improve your photography skills, or make little extra cash by taking up a side hustle, here’s a really affordable course that won’t break the bank.

If you’ve been looking for a new skill to pick up while sitting at home, photography might be a good place to start–especially considering that, as of right now, you can experience hundreds of hours of professional photography training for the cost of a few Starbucks runs.

As KnowTechie points out, a photography suite called “Pro Photography & Photoshop 20 Course Bundle” on StackSocial is usually valued at nearly $2000 for access–but, for the next 48 hours, it’s available for $40.

That’s a pretty significant price drop, so if you have a camera and some free time, it’s probably a good idea to snap this one up.

The 20-course bundle includes, appropriately, 20 courses which span over 1000 lessons. You’ll learn everything from basic camera handling to advanced PhotoShop and Lightroom use. The bundle even includes specific courses on niche markets like wedding photography.

While this bundle doesn’t provide you with the aforementioned software, you can actually download and use both Lightroom and PhotoShop for, like, 10 bucks a month–plenty of time to experiment with them within the confines of the course, and without breaking the bank.

You’d be well within your rights to question the validity of photography as a pursuit during a pandemic, but there are a couple of benefits to picking up a new trade–the first of which is its surprising prevalence of contracted photography in the past few months. Similarly, anticipating the sheer number of photographable events that will take place post-lockdown–weddings, festivals, and so on–means that learning how to take a nice photo isn’t such a bad idea.

And, with the gig economy poised to proceed in the coming months, having an artistic skill–even as a back-up option–can’t hurt.

Of course, if you don’t own a camera or have the funds to purchase one, this probably isn’t the best use of your time or money for now. That said, if you’re positioned to use an existing camera–even if you have to borrow it–and you have even a passing interest in photography, this is an opportunity you probably don’t want to miss.

    Hey, this is a fantastic bundle, can’t understand how they’re making it work with such a low price. Photography is one of the most affected domains in this pandemic (no events, no parties, no concerts and so on). However, it would be good to gain the knowledge for next year maybe, but probably that’s why it’s priced so low.
