That goes without saying. We all help each other out. All you need do is ASK as its more like joining an eclectic "family" than a group of associates if you know what I mean.

Photography is actually not as hard you think. The secret is LOTS OF LIGHTS (I use 20, 23watt 6500k CFLs...others use 5500, etc etc) and a cheap spydercube (60 bucks) to get correct color balance. No need for 5k of camera kit. I used a Cannon 3SiS for years. It will surprise you how fast your Photo & Photoshop-fu will ramp up to levels you never thought possible.
