Episode 1690

Chris was unavailable live today, but here is part II of Chris' prerecorded segment that was to run during his Ethiopia trip. You can view the segment back in episode 1688.

This week's ABC mini assignment is:

A - ANTI. Find opposites ... things on the opposite side of the spectrum. Black and white. Round and square. Smooth and rough. Look for contrasts. Once you program your mind to look for them, you'll find them everywhere.

Chris Marquardt is in Ethiopia this weekend, so in this prerecorded photo segment, Chris is talking about another ABC Mini Assignment! If you have a DSLR, A is for AUTO. Chris says that most photographers shoot in Aperture Priority. Chris says to go into full auto mode and enjoy the freedom you get being able to concentrate on photo composition without having the manage settings. If you already do that, go to Aperture Priority instead. B is for BRACKET. Shoot multiple images using Bracket Mode. It will help you nail the exposure on difficult subjects.
