I haven't checked all four pages of this thread so this may have been mentioned before.

Based on the amount of questions I read being asked here about very elementary things I think a workshop simply covering the basics of photography wouldn't go amiss.

After all... You have to be able to walk before you can run.

I would like to see a workshop about composition. I mean like shooting angles for portraits, landscapes and so on. To me getting the angle right is one of the most important things when shooting and sometimes it is not that easy.

I, too, would enjoy seeing tutorials on metering and light painting. Light painting seems like so much fun!

Also, would you perhaps consider doing a brief tutorial on panoramic shots? i.e. exposing correctly, lining them up properly, etc.?

Hi, first of all I must thank to cameralabs for teaching me photography, I've learned from this site (from the workshops) and forum almost everything I know now!
So thanks cameralabs :), good job gordon.

I'm very passionate about airplanes, in fact I'm a young aircraft engineer. So I've been to a few airshow's and also spotting and I've found it pretty difficult to shoot at the airshow, so I think an action/sports workshop will be grate :D .

many thanks! Claudiu

Hi Claudiu, welcome on-board! Sadly there's very few airshows around where I now live, so the likelihood of a workshop on them is slim! But there are several threads on airshows and planes in other sections of the forum if you fancy a search...

Ok so like many other people I didnt read all 5 pages of suggestions. So if any of these have been said please omit them.

1. Guide to buying used lenses (what to look for--mold--dust--damage)

2. A quick Introduction to the DSLR world explaining Exposure, Aperture, Shutter and sensitivity. (Since there are so many people moving from point and shoots to DSLR's)

3. What settings to use for different times of day or with different light situations. Smaller aperture? slower shutter? Higher or lower sensitivity?

bit of an odd request...

Tips on how to hold a camera to minimize unneccessary blurring in a picture.

I find it hard to concentrate on my shot, think about how I'm stood and other things when I'm using the beercan lens.

I take a fairly wide stance when I can to get a firm grounding, but sometimes my arms dunno what they're doing!

Like I said, odd request and maybe a little too basic - but I'm finding quite a lot of my shots aren't focused correctly because I've shook taking the picture. Find it quite annoying when you've got a couple of seconds to get the shot you want of a live object.
