    It seems to me that all the sarcasm and berating comments aren't necessary. The OP is asking questions about an idea she has and all she really needs is to know what she's missing to do this. She's most likely not aware that taking photographs in the setting she describes is more than just posing the subject and pressing the shutter. You guys that have been through all the wars know what it takes to get started and her question is an invitation to share that experience, not be belittled. If someone asks a naive question as the OP's may be, simply making them aware of what they're not considering should be enough. If the OP's response to that advice is a negative one, then go to town on them, but not until then.

    Every established professional on this forum was at some point a beginner with big ideas and somehow were helped along with their maturation as a professional photographer. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the use of the term "wannabe", but weren't all you established, experienced guys "wannabes" at some point?

    I think that all these negative responses only serve to discourage beginners and makes you guys seem mean and bitter.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I think the point is that many of us who were or are PRO.. learned to use our cameras, and get decent images.. BEFORE we decided to turn PRO!

    Unlike the vast majority of "Wannabe's" who think having what they consider a fancy camera (usually a low end entry level body with kit lenses that have slow apertures, slow and imprecise focusing, and less than stellar IQ)! They get the camera.. and next thing they seem to do is start charging.. even if they are shooting on AUTO or PROGRAM! And most of them are "natural light" photographers.. because they don't have a clue about using a flash.. or usually even reflectors. They lack even the most basic knowledge about how to work with light.. but they are still "PROS" right?

    If someone is charging for photos.. by definition.. they are a PROFESSIONAL!

    SO why are all of these "PROFESSIONALS" asking really stupid, basic beginner questions?

    And how are we obligated in any way to help them?

    I, for one, didn't make the assumption because the OP posted in the Beginner's Forum. I "assumed" it because they started with the words, "I'm a beginner, and..."
