1. I hear the terms Global and Local Adjustments discussed by photographers.  Could you give examples of each?


2. I have an Epson printer that I use to make 8×10” prints of my portraits. Do I have to use Epson paper/inks or can I use others?


3. I hear that if you stop down to a lens smallest aperture (f/22 in my case) that the image may not be as sharp as it would be if you shoot at f/16. Can you elaborate on that?


4. Is it better to have a zoom lens that is push/pull or one that uses a ring that you twist to zoom in or out?


5. I see people making these beautiful sunset photos with very saturated colors. When I make sunset photos the colors are muted by comparison. What am I missing?


6. What is the best way to change lenses so I don’t hurt my camera or the lens?


7. My friend has a camera with image stabilization built into the camera body. I have a camera that doesn’t offer that feature but instead offers that as an option in the lens. Can you explain pros and cons of each?


8. Which is the best color space to use when working in Photoshop? Adobe RGB or sRGB? 


9. Have you ever used extension tubes and do they harm image quality?


10. What exactly is a neutral density filter and do I need one?
