Chris wants to bust the Zoom Myth. There's a big debate about whether to zoom into a shot, or walk up to the subject to get the shot. Chris says zooming doens't change perspective. Walking up, by contrast, does change perspective, and you can prove it by taking the same picture with both technique. You can change your perspective by moving around, but Chris says if you explore a subject and walk around it, you'll see more than just perspective, you'll see light. Chris says that composition is important too, and you can learn it best with a 50mm lens, aka the "nifty fifty."

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