Count this as marketing for Nikon, but it's useful marketing nonetheless. The camera maker is rolling out a series of videos showing you how to develop your photography skills. The first one is all about combining natural light with a flash.

Nikon has recruited notables such as National Geographic photographer Joe McNally to host the videos, so there is some cred behind these spots. Not that there is any shortage of photo tutorial videos around the web, but most often they are poorly produced and like an hour long each. Nikon's videos are clear and concise. They are probably not for the advanced user, but even professionals can brush up on the basics!

The videos will show up every week until the end of the summer on their youtube page.
