Break and voting on Theme Competition This month's theme = Phone Photos. Winner: Norm Wright

Techniques and Tips: Norm Wright – Composition: Before the break, all present were asked to take a photo during the break for discussion of composition.  Using these, he discussed the tendency to go for portrait when often landscape would make better sense.  Norm then gave a presentation on some cell phone techniques, touching on how to enhance your photos, framing the subject, using backlighting, angle shots, and other enhancements.
