When is it acceptable to ask for something from a skilled individual for free?
Up until the point when they look irritated, the questions do not compromise them (business or personally) are ghost talking/listening or they look in a hurry
This forum is filled with knowledgeable people though. There are national/international photographers, event (sports/wedding), still (food/art), newspaper, technical (manuals) and even videographers. I'm an IT professional for instance that does photography for a large school district (yearbooks and such), teach photography/videography to kids (some of them have won awards even) and on my off time work freelance for two local news papers. Sure, there are a lot of amateurs here, heck, 90% of PotN members are probably weekend warriors. However, there's still a lot of knowledge here. Don't shrug it off to quickly.
