What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, May 15, 2014:

Technology has transformed photography. Not very long ago, a high-end 35mm camera was needed to take the best photographs.
Today, inexpensive point-and-shoot digital cameras and cameras on mobile phones mean almost anyone can snap a beautiful picture. Sharing photos on social media has also increased the sheer number of pictures taken.
Summer time activities and vacations are on the way too, so many of us will be taking more photographs.
With all that in mind, don't you wish you could take better photographs?
Thursday's Smart Talk is entitled Photography 101. Appearing on the program to provide tips and answer your photography questions are Madelaine Gray of Madelaine Gray Photography and Albert Sarvis of Sarvis Imagery.
