Met a guy tonight who went and spent $1500 on sony dslr & lens and wanted a crash course in photography. He's going to a graduation and wants to take nice photos, doesn't have a clue how to use it, doesn't know what shutter speed, aperture, ISO, anything. Told him to use a mix of Aperture and Shutter Proirity mode and explained everything about it. Found it kind of cool to know that I've learned a lot in the last 2 years, but infuriating to know that I pretty much wasted 2 hours of my life. Left by telling him, if everything is going to shit, use auto Is it possible to teach someone the basics of a photography in a few hours or is it a waste of time?
