Back in August and September 2010, I ran an introduction to photography course for the social website reddit.com/r/photoclass. It was in 30 parts, completely free and with no prerequisites.
With a few changes, all 30 lessons are now reproduced here in a more readable form.

This class is and will remain freely accessible, so enjoy and don’t hesitate to share this page and to refer your budding photographer friends to it.
