Chris Marquardt

Chris joins Leo to talk about how we often tend to work in patterns or groups. We organize and group things to make them make sense. So why not use that same idea in photography? Try and spot the pattern in an image. One way to group things together is by similarity. Another is connections. How do subjects in an image connect visually? How do they contrast? How are they in proximity? How are they aligned? Groupings can tell a story.

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