Back in August and September 2010, I ran an introduction to photography course for the social website reddit.com. It was in 30 parts, completely free and with no prerequisites.

With a few changes, the 30 lessons are now reproduced here in a more readable form. Feel free to link to this page or to refer your friends and budding photographers to it. And if you complete the class and find it useful, I would love to hear from you!
