    Default Calling all Lurkers!

    Are there any lurkers out there who are just starting to get to know their cameras that would like a little help along the way? The ladies here at the pg.org Photography board helped me so much while I was starting out, and I want to pay it forward. I was thinking that I could do a little mentorship on the basics of photography.

    Is there any interest?? If so, give a little intro, and maybe post a couple of photos to show where you are in your journey.

    Somebody should take Steph up on this! Don't be nervous.

    I waited TOO LONG to involved (possibly almost 4 years...just sayin') - I've learned a ton just since I started actively participating and regret I didn't do it sooner. I have thousands of photos that could have been much better...even just snapshots of my kids doing every day things!

    I've totally been lurking this board
    I keep trying to remember to post some photos and get some CC, but I always forget......or I remember just as I'm shutting my computer down for the night!
    I've taken a couple of into courses to get to know my camera, but they're so spread out, and I have so little time to practice, that I seem to forget everything! As soon as I leave whatever class I was in, I've already forgotten about F-stops and shutter speeds!

    Well, Jo, are you up for some mentoring? I don't claim to know everything, but I can most certainly help you out with the basics to get you going. It's one of those things where we'll add one thing at a time. I'm a firm believer on taking things one step at a time in photography. Starting with exposure, then move on to watching backgrounds or chopping arms or legs, and just progressively working on things that are more difficult.

    I also do want to mention that I'm definitely more of a portrait photographer. I try so hard with landscapes/nature, but for some reason I just don't have the eye. I see that you're due with your first child. Do you have anyone to practice on? Is your hubby willing? Nieces or nephews?

    Steph, i've just started lurking here again. You caught me! I'd give anything if you could teach a photoshop class. Masking, black and white conversions, etc. I'm in awe of your B&Ws! Just gorgeous!

    How about a newbie group? I'll take up to 5 lurkers who are new to photography. So we have Marie, Elizabeth, and Jo. I'll take 2 more in the group. You can each have your own day to post up to 3 photos for CC. I'll CC them, and maybe the others can CC them as well?

    I am not new, nor do I lurk, I know the basics but would love to see your hints and tips to others, see if I am doing things right. Don't reserve me a spot, I am sure there are others with less experience that could use your help.
