Can't find an answer ...


"Any Questions?"

Do you have any unanswered questions?

Last week a Better Photographs follower, Jake asked me a question which I could not answer. Because of that I posted the question on the Better Photographs Facebook Page -


Within a half an hour another follower, Basil had spotted the question and posted the answer on the page. Jake responded by thanking Basil.

The question and answer is pinned to the top of the Facebook Page and starts -

"Hi, I recently tried to do a timelapse with my canon 1200d DSLR. However whenever I tried to do a 30 second shutter speed ..."

So if you have any questions which are not answered on the Better Photographs website, why not try posting the question on our Facebook Page? You might get an answer that way and you will probably be helping others who want to know as well.
