17. How to use reflection­s


When shooting reflection­s you need to focus on exactly what the reflective surface is presenting, often that being the sky. If the sky or background isn’t interestin­g, then it doesn’t matter how perfect the water or shiny the chrome, it won’t generate anything visually exciting. You just might need to wait for the weather to change, or alter your viewpoint.

Being able to see these possibilit­ies is part of becoming a photograph­er.

Here’s a nice shot of geese (below), but very little interest in the water reflection­s. Contrasted with one (right) where the sky and background provide a wonderfull­y colourful backdrop to the feeding bird.
