Default Photo pet beeves/pet hates

"How can I take great pics of such & such".

I don't know, but to be able to take "great" photos might need working very hard at it. Trying different things and for a long time might help. Reading page 37 or listening to aam1234 won't get you that "great" pic I'm afraid. It's a lot harder than that.

Do you have any pet beeves/pet hates.

Yeah, I hate it when the bullies beat me up and step on my camera equipment at the beach...

Another one.

The time it takes to select the focus point. By the time you selected the focus point the situation/subject has changed. Even if it's a posed portrait, that second or two changed the smile on the face of the person.

I look at it more as an opportunity to share my hobby and educate someone. Just like I try to take someone flying whenever I go up.

Shoot faster and practice more. Practice on kids. The darn things never sit still.

Agree with you Brian about the kids. They move so fast and change direction(s) unexpectedly that I think it's easier to shoot F1 races than little kids. At least with F1 you know where the car is going.

And thanks for correcting my spelling, btw.
