Photography and Gear: Learn to take better pictures.

Regardless of what kind of camera you own; a DSLR, camera phone,  or a point and shoot, I can show you how to take better pictures either by composition or show you how to use your manual mode or "creative mode", if you have it, to really take advantage of your hidden creativity.  Need a critique on some of your work?  I can give you an honest opinion.  Need gear advice, what to buy next, under budget, over budget, hand me down?  I can help you find what you need within your wants.

I'm usually available from 10am - 11am PST scheduled, but will accept drop ins after 11am as time permits.  Because of many drop outs, cancellations  and no shows please respond to my confirmation messages so that your hHlpout won't be cancelled.  Hope to "see" you soon!

This was a really excellent Helpout. Darwin is very knowledgeable, about camera settings and equipment. He answered my questions ranging from composition to shutter speeds and aperture mode. He is even willing to offer critique of your photos.
I recommend this to anyone who has questions about photography.
