Chris Marquardt and the Five Minute Assignment

Episode 1664 (1:09:31)

Chris Marquardt

Experiment with these three five minute assignments:

1. The Aperture assignment. Take a photo at the lowest aperture setting, and one at the highest aperture setting and compare. Also, try it with telephoto lenses.

2. The Burst Assignment. Use burst mode on your camera and capture motion with it. See what the camera grabs. Pick the best.

3. The Contact Assignment. Find two similar things, but one that farther away. Take three. One where they don't touch, one where they have "contact." One where they overlap. Compare.

Share your results on the Flickr group! Speaking of Flickr: Our next photo assignment is - JOURNEY. Take a photo of, about, or otherwise concerning the concept of "JOURNEY" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "TGJOURNEY" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
