Access to Photography Videos and Tutorials

This is a reminder that you can access all the information on photography in the Lynda.com website via the State Library of Queensland for free.

If you go onto the SLQ website, in Information Collections you will find eresources. Here you will find Learn with Lynda.com.

It will then explain how to access the Lynda website, and how to become a member of the SLQ.

This is a huge and very useful resource that is well worthwhile looking at. There is a course at present on Photojournalism, which may be helpful for the November set subject. Do take the time and check it out.
