Dude, I have used Google. Thanks. I actually have been lurking on this site for a while and have searched some even on APUG. I registered because I couldn't find everything out there on what I was looking for in terms of info. If you're going to mention some concept, and the recipient of your message doesn't understand, you should be able to explain yourself or give a link to a place where information can be gathered. Otherwise, you shouldn't be mentioning it because you aren't going to explain yourself. You shouldn't assume everybody will know everything about photography. At least, that's the way I look at it.
Think you've got some entitlement issues. I wish I had 50 bucks for every photo-related URL I've bookmarked and forum posting I've made over the past decade. Try "how to use a light meter" and take it from there. Don't get the ADHD post-literate avoidance of research. Good luck.
