September 2020- Surreal
How can we use reflections within our Portraiture Photography? With all of these challenges, we are trying to evoke you as photographers to look at the world in hopefully a new way. Reflections can add some interest to what could be a conventional image. What do we need? A reflective surface such as a mirror, a puddle, bar top, or a window for example. If you are using a puddle you could create an impressionist effect by having a ripple in the water (slow shutter speed). Light is always important as with every image. Normally, a deep depth of field would be recommended to be able to see the reflection unless you want to create an ethereal effect.
Tips and Inspirations:
The winner of this Challenge is
This image is very striking. The colour is saturated and the red is bold and suggests urgency. The framing of the two portraits reflected is strong. The lady on the left walking into the frame in white, swinging her arms while the gentleman is in black holding his head suggests a certain emotion. The strong line in the middle dividing their lives, although they are walking towards each other and we never see the meeting. The layers of thought, composition and colour make this fantastic! Congratulations Geri.
