yeah, no reason to start on post production until I get better at the actual photography

I think they go hand-in-hand.

maybe when you are proficient at photography? But my understanding is that you cant take a bad picture and make it good in post. I want to get better at taking good pictures and then worry about editing them later. This is the advice i have gotten from several photographers. Anyone else want to weigh in?

I liked that one.  He mentions something about creating a menu folder with all of your most frequently changed settings. Does anyone know if I can do that on the a6000? I tried googling for that info but couldnt find anything.

I don't have my camera with me now, but I'm nearly sure you can save up to 3 presets.

I dont mean to change the 3 dedicated buttons. I mean in the menu to make a folder of things like upload to smartphone, white balance, auto focus, effects... Things that I would use frequently but dont want to have to remember where in the menus they are

Gotcha. If you dig through the menu and find that option, don't forget to add that to your "frequently used settings" menu.  :P

There are many of those. You have to be more specific of which type of portraits you want, otherwise you'll drown in the options they have available. They have many many courses for home studio, studio on a budget etc. if that's what you're looking for.

Focus, recompose
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
