Photography and Gear: Learn to take better pictures.

About this Helpout

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 - 12pm Pacific Standard Time 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 Helpout won't be cancelled.  Hope to "see" you soon!
