Photo Tip Friday
You'll notice my first two shots involve water.
The one to your right is just the reflection of a statue in the water of the pond. But you can also see the pond plants in the water. Look closely and you can see the blue sky and white clouds in the shot as well. Or at least their reflection.
In this shot, you can see the water plants more clearly. But what I like about the shot is that the reflections of the iris are so dark. It adds a strong contrast to the photo.
Water and mirrors are fairly obvious places to use reflections. But keep an eye out. I did while taking pictures of my niece playing a piano.
You can see my niece's hands on the keyboard. But look who's listening....her grandparents. I couldn't resist the shot of the three of them reflected in the piano!
And, yes, well painted pianos provide a great opportunity for reflective shots!
In this one, a professor was teaching my daughter how to play something on an upright piano.
Look at how clear the reflection is.
So, look a little deeper with your shots and see when you can use reflections to create a more interesting shot!
Go grab your camera.
