Chris Marquardt

With Winter, there's a lot of overcast skies and snow, and that means we're spending more time inside. So Chris says it's time to begin practicing your photography by shooting something from different angles to practice your photo composition. You can do that indoors with your iPhone where it's nice and warm! Just take a picture of a flower vase, for example. Also, pay close attention to how light falls on your subject and how the colors look. How does the color change with light or angle? This will help you understand what light and color does and how to manipulate it on your subject.

Chris has started a new podcast called "The Future of Photography," deep diving into what is just over the horizon with photography, cameras, and our photographic future.

Don't forget our current assignment - "Try." Take a photo of, about, or otherwise concerning the concept of "Try" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "Try" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up in next month's photo contest review segment!
