The thing is though, apart from the usual humour (which I hope nobody is going to try and get rid of) where are the unhelpful or mocking posts in this thread? My experience is that people are helpful and genuine questions get answered

Sometimes a couple of lines of helpful comment can be of more assistance to a beginner than an incredibly complex "hey, look how much I know" reply.......... that's for sure!
I'll go along with that, CB.
Especially when a long encyclopedic explanation follows the simple one you have just given.
Quote: this is a section for the beginners to feel comfortable in
a lot of people just use 'recent activity' and don't notice what section its from.
Quote: if they are just going to be mocked
that hasn't happened in this thread, although people do often use self deprecation to make the point.
there are some comments that are perhaps tired or cynical, arising from experience of how questions are often answered inappropriately.
I suppose useful 'beginner tips' might not be what beginners expect, but this thread ought to be pretty helpful really.
Incidentally I have both left the lens cap on, and lost the lens cap, and I do regard those as important fundamentals in photography.

Spot on. We could actually have almost everything lumped into a single forum section and it wouldn't make a great deal of difference to many users.
Having a mental block on finding something new to photograph ?
If when you go out and take a route:
Home to A to B to C to Home try the route in reverse.
I guarantee you will spot different views, subjects etc.
You do not even need the camera... could be just taking the dog for a walk.
I found this site and got my grand daughter (11yrs) using it as she is getting into photography. After a week she is telling her father about f-stops, aperture setting and white balance etc.
I just went back and played with it myself. Is quite fun
Thought I would put it here incase it did help someone. Or is there a better forum to post it to? Maybe "Tips for the Pro's"?
