Got any noob friends? Send them here!

lifehacker123 says:

Am I the only one around here who never had any of these problems? Maybe
it’s because I bought a Sony SLT, so what you see is what you get. But
really, I have never taken a single photo that is completely and totally
wrong to the point where I couldn’t use it.

BKMPictures says:

I constantly forget to take my sd cards out of the computer… SO

Melissa Juice says:

I still forget to take off the lens cap all the time. And when it’s finally
off, I don’t know where to put it. 

DJmorex says:

My most common noob fail is shooting in jpg thinking that it´s on raw…

farnsworth3000 says:

I was always loosing lens caps in places.

SuperSocomSeals says:

In all honesty, I don’t remember doing stuff like this when I first started
out. I have the camera in Manual so the flash doesn’t come up unless I want
it to. Auto white-balance, auto-focus beeps so I can tell if it is still in
manual, and the lens cap thing; I use the viewfinder but if the lens cap is
still on, I can’t see anything (plus I’ve gotten into the habit of
automatically taking it off every time I turn on the camera. The only one
that I still do from time to time is the SD card, but I’ve been checking a
lot lately beforehand, plus I keep in extra one in my bag anyways ;) Still
a funny video though

when i was starting out i discovered that my old fujica wasn’t actually
spooling up the film properly…. i shot a whole roll of nothing…..

Baba Wethu says:

Oh my god. My girlfriends parents have a D90, and I checked their photos,
and they had taken 300 pictures of their kids in the sun, family gatherings
outside, barbecue parties and stuff, and when I checked the settings, all
300 pictures were taken with Hi 1 ISO… I mean come on, the dad that owns
the camera and takes most of the photos has even taken a photography
course. There were even some shots made in M that still had Hi 1. THE

Some things make me cringe…

FlyteWizard says:

I leave the lens hood on backwards, because I don’t want it to break in my
bag. I know it isn’t doing the lens hood thing while being backwards. 

Chi Ho Ko says:

I was always keeping the iso 100 until I got into a cave and change it to
3200 and only forgot lens cap a few times. :p

Just started out a photography business out of orlando but we travel around
Florida and Georgia. Feel free to go over to the Facebook page and give us a like and a share.
We do headshots, family photos and special event photos (i.e. school
dances, senior photos, holidays)… Anything will help since it is a brand
new business, and your support is generously thanked.

NikeMan4life says:

Has anyone actually ever mounted a lens hood backwards?

Milan Svitek says:

I forgot my SD card more times than I can count… Thank god I always keep
a few extras in my car, wallet, and bag (having a cheap 8GB one is better
than having a no GB one)

Илья Медов says:

i forget my cf card most of times i go anywhere =(

iBeFloe says:

Modes and ISO trip me up sometimes lol
Sorry for being a noob xD
Idk what I did with my film but it ended up with the top half being dark
and the bottom half being too light. Probably did something wrong with the
chemicals? But I fill it the to the rim each time & it usually works but
that 1 time I did it, it did that half & half thing…

myscrnnm says:

So much fail.

Victor Lee says:

So I went to go shoot an event and they gave me a Photography assistance
and they gave him a dslr but the thing is he does no know how to shoot
dslr. So we shoot inside and then we had to out and he took a picture and I
looked at the pic and said the highlights are over blown and he said oh I
cant take pic out side my camera I not used to the sun
