Chris Martquardt on Photography

Today Chris wants to talk about photography in winter time. There's some tips to make your image better when it's cold.

1. The winter sky is often grey, so try and avoid it.
2. Embrace the grey sky and use a graduated filter to increase the contrast so it doesn't blow out.
3. Look for color to add contrast. Winter is all white and gray, so adding color will make it pop.
4. Add color yourself.
5. Get up early. The frost on the leaves in the early morning, the fog, and sunrises are very magical in the winter time. Capture it.

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