Photographing Reflections

Photographing Reflections

Sunday 01 September
Bond Avenue - 2pm - 2 Hours
Loredana Sabau
We will be using natural water reflections and seeking out man-made reflective surfaces in the area to explore how we can use reflections to add depth and intrigue to our images. Reflections can help us to show our subject from an unusual, or from multiple, points of view. We can use reflections to abstract our subject or to make perfect mirror images. We'll even have a look at how we can create our own reflections when there are none around.

Furzton Lake, Milton Keynes, ENG - 1pm - 2 Hours

One of the most basic tenets of composition is the Rule of Thirds. Although most people are familiar with this technique it is often forgotten in the haste to take a photo. However you ignore it at your peril as it can make an average snap into something which is has tension and dynamism.

In this meetup we will practice using the Rule of Thirds in a setting full of photographic possibility.

    The picture shows the illuminated dome of St. Pauls Cathedral in London. The long exposure photography captures the movement and energy of the city against the static and majestic backdrop of the cathedral. I would like to think the contrast between the stillness of the architecture and the motion of the lights creates a striking visual effect.Nikon Z835mmISO 60f83? Shutter

The lens was a second hand one I had just bought, so was testing it out, its an Olympus 50 - 200mm Four Thirds, so I had to

    The photo is not complicated - I simply used a perspex shallow tray with white card behind it. I then poured a mixture of milk and water into the tray - I used about 50 - 50 mix. Just make sure the mixture isn't too deep and then place your object of choice into it, letting some of the object show through the milky water and the rest above it. I hand held the camera above the image, worked out what lighting I needed so I didn't get reflections and took the image. The only post processing tha

    Photo was taken in August of 2023 near the San Juan Islands north west of Seattle. We were following a family of Orca who we believe were teaching their young how to hunt. This photo was of an orca in pursuit of a porpoise. I actually have two other photos of the live pursuit with the orca tracking down and catching the porpoise. I would be happy to provide those as well if you?d like.
