    General Tips for a begginer, Please!!

    I am fully self-taught at this point and I am having a little trouble getting some of the technical aspects under my belt. I think what I really need most is an extra pair (or more) of eyes. I know one of my biggest problems has been overexposing images. I am trying to get that a bit better...
