Chris Marquardt ... Directed

Episode 1732 (1:19:05)

Today's photo segment is all about direction in Photography. Showing direction from your subject can create some tension in how a photo makes you feel. It can add to a story. And sometimes, one direction can feel better than another. Lesser space in one direction can create tension, like the subject is about to impact the edge, while the space behind it can relax how the viewer feels. 

A photographer can also imply direction by how they have the subject look to the side, even if the eyes are locked onto the camera itself.

Here's a gallery for today's segment.

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