Default Photo tutorial feedback requested

Looking for your feedback and critique.

I've recently put together a photography tutorial intended for non-photographers. The target audience is the woodturning community. Photography is a frequent topic of discussion among this group (it's how I got hooked) even though most know little or nothing about it. Most are only equipped with a point-and-shoot and only do product shots. A VERY frequently asked question is, "How do I improve my photos?"

Given the target audience this is a basic, non-technical "tips and tricks" tutorial geared more towards product work. I did not go into DOF, shutter speed, etc since most readers would have no interest (trust me on that). I also didn't cover image compression (see section on resolution and image quality), although in hind-sight I probably should have. My technical knowledge there is too thin to speak intelligently.

The tutorial has already been widely read in the turning community but I would welcome feedback from you gurus in the art. I'm always looking to improve.

Here's the tutorial: http://www.nealaddy.org/node/16

Thanks in advance!

Neal

It looks good to me. You've covered some critical topics that are often overlooked, and done it concisely. Referring the woodturners elsewhere for information on aperture, depth-of-field, etc., is probably a good idea in this instance. Those subjects are important, but too much information can overload someone wanting to use photography to support their main hobby or business.

Thanks Jim. I was hoping you would chime in. I appreciate you taking the time to read it and reply.

That's good to hear. I tried to maintain a balance between too little and too much.
