- One tip per post, but you may add as many as you like.
- Please change the title (advanced edit) and give the tip a short simple keyword-strong title. Example: 'Tripod stability'. Then in the text you could say "Use a carrier bag full of rocks suspended from your tripod for extra stability" (There's another tip!)
- No strolling down Tangent Avenue. Keep to the subject.
- Use brevity (that means few words). Then, people new to the thread can quickly scan through picking out what they need. No essays, polemics, internecine warfare, or your life history (you can PM me that bit).
- Please do not start discussions about someone else's post. We want to keep it tight. If you disagree with the content of a tip, please PM me.
- No recommendations to buy specific gear. But you can give general recommendations such as 'Get a tripod'.
- Please keep things simple and general. We don't really want to know about some obscure layer icon in CS5.
- Please do not add any posts other than tips. If you have an issue with something, please PM me.
- I reserve the right to amend/remove any tip post that is innacurate, misleading, or not a tip.
- You may include a shot to demonstrate something. Or include a screen-grab to show a screen/manu.
WHAT SORT OF THINGS CAN I GIVE A TIP FOR?
- Composition - tips for framing a shot.
- Anything theoretical or practical, so long as it's connected to photography, but do not make it too specific.
- Photo-editing - general points, but remember not everyone uses GIMP, or even PS.
- How to treat gear.
- Tips on macro shooting
- Business tips
- Anything to do with using a camera to take shots.
- Educational tips
- PG Tips (no, that's wrong that's a tea)
- BW conversion tips
- Anything, in fact.
