Unless you live in a big city, I guess, I'd recommend eBay over CL... Even after fees and shipping I feel like I make more there than CL. I live in atlanta.

I'd say to send her to a local store offering classes (free or otherwise). I lecture a lot and do teach advanced studio photography, but I don't teach beginners. It'll keep your neighborly friendship, your own headaches down, and she'll be amongst her "peers" at the same level of knowledge so that they can bounce ideas off each other freely with the guidance of a structured method to learn.
As she gets more "advanced" and familiar with the craft, then you could always step in and give advice, critiques, etc. Once she has the basics down, then if you were to take her out on a shoot to work on something specific, i.e fill flash, composition, etc. it would be much easier.
Excellent advice, take it.
Remember always, "No good turn goes unpunished", you have a good relationship with your neighbour, getting in boots and all has the disadvantage of changing that relationship, that may not be what you want in the long run.
If you decide to go Boots and all, do it without charging, money will almost surely soar the relationship, almost always does.
More faulty logic: you are still assuming that video costs extra,
You got it wrong. I don't care in at all, how much it costs a camera maker to add video capability to a DSLR (it does cost something). ALL I am saying is, that camera makers should CHARGE more for dual purpose gear compared to single purpose gear.
They should sell all cameras in a video-enabled version and a video disabled version. Video disabled version at significantly lower price. Video-enabled version at much higher price, but still much lower than combined cost of a stills and a video camera. That would be fair. That way, those who clamour for additional usage and functionality in a camera that is NOT required by many (stills photographers) would be made to pay for their part of the ride.
It's like going on a cruise ... passage in cabin with sea view does not cause (significantly) higher cost to the cruise company than passengers in a "inner" cabin. But the price charged is hugely different. Simply, because users of the outward cabin get extra functionality/pleasure.
The site homepage was put back to the original and should be simpler. I will further tweak it tonight. Please remember I have only been working on it for 6 days periodically. I also think people should comment truthfully but put your money were your mouth is and show a link to your well put together site if you want to truly put your point across.
I say this with the best of intentions.
I've been learning my way around photoshop.
I see how you can create a logo and store it as a brush, and easily "stamp" your logo on images.
I'm curious....that process is ok if you're only doing a few images at a time.
But what if you have 100+ images you need to get out with a logo or watermark on them? Do ya'll program a PS action for this or what?
I've not gotten to 'actions' yet....but have heard about them.
Thanks in advance,
If you create a logo in photoshop and then save it as a PNG you can then use it in Lightroom. In LR go to edit > edit watermarks > and then click on the "choose" button in the Image options tab in the top right hand corner (you can also click on the "Graphic" option too which does the same thing). Find the PNG file and boom you're done. Now you can select multiple images and export with your watermark.
don't get too bogged down on it, as most people won't care....
With that much money, why not get a NEW 5D III from authourized dealer
