LISTEN: audio introduction

This online class is designed for beginners, hobbyists and students / educators who wish to learn the basic fundamentals of making holograms. With over 3 hours of instructional media, you will receive a brief history, explore practical applications, review basic concepts and theory, and acquire methods and best practices of making holograms. Carefully. Methodically. Correctly.

You will learn about various holographic formats, gas and diode lasers, and recording media. You will have access to helpful PDF documents to conduct your own knowledge excavation. Next, you'll receive step-by-step instruction on setting up your own starter DIY holography studio / lab, much of it from inexpensive (even no-cost), readily available materials. You will gain insights and instruction on making your first hologram, and explore next steps, including an introduction to full color holography.

Register when you want to. Start when you want to. Finish when you want to. The choice is yours. There is no time limit to complete the course, and you can progress at your own pace: as quickly or as slowly as you wish.

It is my goal to provide you with a great foundation that will last a lifetime.

Frank DeFreitas 2015 My name is Frank DeFreitas ...
After a lifetime of service with lasers and holograms, I spend my time caring for my 20,000+ piece history of holography archives. Officially retired, I now have time to work on my own holography projects, and I enjoy sharing my historical and future applications knowledge through speaking engagements and presentations.
