do you really want my opinion?
there are 2 main categories of questions:
1) the really basic ones, which, as educated citizens of the internet (i mean, you *ARE* posting in clubsnap, so that means you know how to use google at the very least).. most of us would already know the magical wonders of either:
a. google, your best friend
b. wikipedia, your second best friend
c. yahoo, the girl you wanted to date but found out she wasn't as pretty as google
d. well, if you really must use msn search, you can
you catch the drift, no? i am always, along with most other people here, more than happy to answer questions to which the answers are not easily found on the internet. as in, REALLY EASILY. as in, if you TYPE IN "what is gnd?" "what is iso setting?" etc etc etc, ask google and ye shalt receive questions.
under this category there would be the even more amusing sort.. which belong to more like "how do i power on my camera?" - you get the idea. there is also the "how much is this item costing right now" variety and "please tell me what camera to buy" variety - the former means that you are simply too lazy to make a few, cheap phone calls, and the latter means you want an answer to a question which has no answer. the best part is, sometimes, these threads will be posted as a salvo, 2 hours apart, one thread right above the other.
2. questions that probably need more than just typing in google. stuff like, composition - i have not found a consolidated good site on this, to be frank, there are dribs and drabs and there is nothing which allows one to pass judgement on his picture right away. other stuff like photoshop techniques, where one has to filter through many sites where you have to pay money for something you can easily obtain on specialised sites like clubsnap. i mean, come on, if you're really interested in photography after a while you'd be able to differentiate category 1 and 2.
i'm sure you've been there. like in school, the people who ask questions which help improve your understanding on the subject, or the people who ask questions which seek to simply waste the teacher's time and yours as well. i do not refer to slower students, that is still fine, but there are those who have not done their homework, and wish the teacher to focus all attention on them, think for them, and spoonfeed them like they are 3 years old still and sitting on a high chair. this category, would all belong to 1.
