Picture This! – Our Next Assignment
At The Flea Market
The setups at flea markets and yard sales can seem like they were tailor-made still life setups for photographers. How you frame and the disparate subjects you include in your frame speak to both your eye and your comment on the stuff we all seem to collect. This month’s Picture This! assignment, “At the Flea Market,” is all about composition, form, and color and how all come together in those found moments you come across along the way. This photo was made with a Canon EOS 40D and an exposure of f/8 at 1/160 sec at ISO 100.
