Episode 1771 (1:05:33)

Chris joins Leo to talk about another factor in photography: placement. Similar to composition, the question is always "where do I place the subject in the photo?" This determines what the photo is about and is always related to something else. This could be something in or outside the frame. The background is always in relation to the subject in the foreground, no matter what the photographer is focused on. 

Here are images to illustrate:

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