Chris Marquardt and the Snapshot

Episode 1738 (1:15:10)

Chris Marquardt

Today, Chris joins Leo to talk about THE SNAPSHOT. A casual shot meant to be a documentary record, rather than an artistic image. It doesn't usually have a lot of intention or planning like a set still image designed to tell a story. But that doesn't mean you can't employ the skills you've learned in photography to make a snapshot all it can be, and to even tell a story.  Chris took images recently with his iPhone, using an app called Argentum, a black and white camera app. It gives your snapshots an Ansel Adams kind of feel.

Here are a few examples:

Chris is also planning to get a new iPhone 12 Pro, but he's still a fan of the smaller form iPhones. But he's going to stick with the iPhone Mini and two cameras. That's enough.

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