Chris Marquardt is in Ethiopia this weekend, so in this prerecorded photo segment, Chris is talking about another ABC Mini Assignment! If you have a DSLR, A is for AUTO. Chris says that most photographers shoot in Aperture Priority. Chris says to go into full auto mode and enjoy the freedom you get being able to concentrate on photo composition without having the manage settings. If you already do that, go to Aperture Priority instead. B is for BRACKET. Shoot multiple images using Bracket Mode. It will help you nail the exposure on difficult subjects. It'll take multiple photos at different exposures. Usually one stop either way. You can then choose the best, or stitch them together with software to make an HDR image. 

Lastly, C is for CIRCLE and this is for everyone, no matter what camera they are using. Shoot an image with a circle in it. Let your imagination run wild. 

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