Chris Marquardt

Chris says that there's three exercises you can do to improve your skill to better asses your depth of field. 1) Use aperture priority settings, then focus on something close, then focus on something far. Take shots with each using the same aperture. Notice the difference. Shoot wide angle standing up. Then crouch down. Notice the difference in foreground. Last exercise, crop vs. perspective change. Take a picture. Then zoom in and take a second picture. And then move closer and take the same picture at the original setting. Notice the difference.

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