Reflection of Youth
According to Merriam-Webster reflection can be defined as "a thought, idea, or opinion formed or a remark made as a result of meditation," or "consideration of some subject matter, idea, or purpose" So my good friend, Cole Paulson ( https://colepaulson.com ), a background actor in Atlanta, agreed to help me illustrate the challenges of getting the younger generation to hear the older.
Light. That's the medium photographers create their art with. We usually play with light and shadows but this week we're going to try something often overlooked - Reflections. Boost your photo's aesthetic by using reflections - add more depth and complexity with this aspect of photography and see the world in a whole new way. You might shoot a landscape near a body of (relatively still) water, or grab a great shot of a portrait through a window with reflections to accentuate and frame the subject. Cities are great places to find reflections - vehicle mirrors, puddles of water or even the glass façades of urban towers. Product photography and macro shots of objects on mirrors can also make for very cool shots. Be creative and think of using symmetry with mirrors or tangentially, go beyond the literal and take shots of people deep in their thoughts and reflecting upon something - it's up to you to work those creative and visual muscles of yours. Visualize your composition, be patient and don't hesitate to try new stuff out to get a great shot. Take time to observe your surroundings for cool opportunites out there or feel free to make your own indoors. Just ask yourself: "What is the light doing here ?"
