Today, Chris wants to talk about a DIY approach to photography. How can you make your images better without spending a lot of money? First, understand light. Harsh light is bad for images, so use soft light. You can do this by shooting in the shade. Block the sun with yourself, or a piece of cardboard. Or maybe use what's called a "light tent." If shooting in Macro, use a white plastic cup with the hole cut out of it so you can place the lens into it. This will create a beautify diffused light when shooting extremely close images.

Chris is planning a trip to Siberial to visit the clearest lake in the world - Lake Baikal. The trip happens in March of 2016, and you're invited! Visit tfttf.com for more information. Meanwhile, next week we'll be reviewing our current assignment ... SOUR! Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "sour" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "sour" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
