Chris' photo tip today is to pay close attention to shooting at wide angle. Often when you get a new wide angle lens, you assume it'll look the same, just more of it. But Chris says that the problem is that wide angle lenses also emphasis the depth of a picture, and that can cause an image to be a bit distorted. A camera doesn't really duplicate what you see, it duplicates what it sees. And photography is a process of seeing the world how a camera sees. And by doing that, you can hack the camera to come closer to the image and how you feel seeing it.

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

Chris has a new book out called the The Film Photography Handbook. Check it out.
