Chris was unavailable live today, but here is part II of Chris' prerecorded segment that was to run during his Ethiopia trip. You can view the segment back in episode 1688.

This week's ABC mini assignment is:

A - ANTI. Find opposites ... things on the opposite side of the spectrum. Black and white. Round and square. Smooth and rough. Look for contrasts. Once you program your mind to look for them, you'll find them everywhere.

B - BRIGHTNESS. It doesn't matter what camera you use for this, but focus on getting your exposure right in a bright setting. Play with your exposure to dial it in. Often times, automatic settings will go too dark. So make manual adjustments to make the exposure more accurate. And don't be afraid of over exposure.

C - CLEAR. Find something clear to shoot through. Ice. Glass. Plastic. Anything that you can shoot through and play with the image. Bonus points if the shot has a reflection as well.

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