I'm dedicated to the art of photography as well as to teaching beginners how to take better photographs whether they use a point and shoot or are new to SLR's. I offer $99 Manual Mode lessons as well as a wealth of information for free on my blog and my "Photograpy_Beginners" yahoogroup. See http://muddyboots.org for links and more information.

comment How does one use circular polarizers?
I use a polarizer on my 10-22mm lens, it works just fine although sometimes the effect can be uneven on the sky due to the angle of the sun. Here's an example: flickr.com/photos/erica_marshall/2061719540

comment How do Cokin and Lee filter systems compare to each other?
Well, I could provide the reference, I googled before I posted my answer, but a quick double-check on B&H shows that Tiffen makes glass filters for Cokin holders, and Lee makes "resin" filters for their system as well, so I guess I oversimplified by stating that Cokin = plastic, Lee = glass. Thanks for calling me on it so I could correct my info here!

revised How do I move my post-processing beyond Picasa?
I realized that I hadn't mentioned that my tutorials were specifically for Gimp.
