I'm not only addressing that, but I have seen these answers given to others who ask for help here. And to awad, thank you for your research. I googled things like, how to use beauty dish, fashion and beauty dish, etc. There is an art to ask the computer how to look for help. To me, I get more help here or links to other sources.
Sorry I had to sound off, but this isn't the first time someone has made responses that don't help, belittle people etc. Not to me personally, but i know some people never came back here for help because of that reason. A bit over sensative perhaps, but I understand. And I have also seen other members here who have responded to someone's questions unfavorably. If we all knew the answers, then why ask anything.
Many people here take time out of their day, me included when I can and give someone a hand. To me, no question is stupid from a beginner. one guy asked here what an "f" stop was. Some people gave very insulting answers, where someone else explained and gave links to tutorials to help. No one that I know of has has a note attached in their diapers on why or how to do anything. Just a joke, had to liven things up a bit haha.
Anyway, if i feel someone has been disrespectful in a response, i will let that person know it, not just for me. but for others and you should too. Why respond at all if good advice or help can't be given
And the answer to the question as to why we got the beauty dish, is that I read many great fashion photographers use them, but so far i haven't seen any step by step tutorials, like diagrams which better help us understand by seeing in real time.
Now though there are several responders who have offered some help, so I have some places to go. And if i see a question asked here and i know the answer or where to find more help, I will post it.
Thanks to all of you who do help us positively katt
