Chris Marquardt: Shooting Clouds

Episode 1787 (1:14:05)

Chris Marquardt

Chris joins Leo to talk about clouds today. Often we treat clouds in the image as an afterthought. But they are more important to the shot than we think. Chris now makes it a part of his decision-making process when it comes to taking a picture. Clouds can be very different depending on the day, giving an image a more dramatic look or an interesting compositional element. They can frame an image, draw a line to the subject, provide visual balance.

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