I took this picture in 2005, when we were in Yosemite Park. It was a very quick decision to take the picture because we were leaving to go to another spot in the park. I took it just because it looked interesting .. didn’t think too much about the light, positioning, etc. LOL!
When I look at the picture now, I can see the inside of the van, wordings on the window on the other side of the van, and a reflection of a stop sign.
I’ve never thought of the picture again until today .. when I read Chasing Reflections, the latest addition to Craft & Vision eBook library.
Actually, I seldom take “reflection” photos unless it involves water … sad, I know. LOL. After reading the eBook, I thought to myself that I could use some of the pointers in there and have more fun with reflections (not just water reflection ;)). So .. all I have to do now is .. make time to actually go out and take pictures…
Anyway, here’s a brief overview from the publisher on the “Chasing Reflections” eBook:
Chasing Reflections is the third in the series The Print & The Process. Eli Reinholdtsen is a creative photographer who, through her unique and skillful approach to reflections, captures moments and juxtapositions that are truly an art form at its finest. Reinholdtsen digs deep and shares tangible ways to scout, setup, and shoot complex and magical photographs that push the envelope of visual poetry. Her playful descriptions aren’t shy of digging deep into the techniques required to capture movement, timing, and contrast.
Chasing Reflections is an inspiring collection of 37 photographs that stand on their own a pieces of pure art (The Print) followed by a discussion of the creation of those visual moments (The Process).
