Chris Marquardt ... A Wider Angle

Episode 1641 (1:06:21)

Chris Marquardt

Chris joins us to talk about using Wider Angles. The new iPhone has a .5x ultra wide-angle lens, and often we can include things in our pictures that we don't want. So Chris recommends doing a background check to see what is in the background. Also, do a "border patrol" and check what's at the edges of your image. See what's going on as it might be intruding in the frame. 

Another issue with ultra wide-angle is a slight distortion at the edges of the frame. Anything at the edge can get stretched. To avoid it, place your subject more towards the middle. 

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