I set myself a little project to use reflections in my photographs. I am fortunate that I work around an interesting area of Edinburgh and have a fantastic commute along the coast so I thought this would be an easy task.

The way the weather has been it proved difficult to get the right conditions and well frustration began to set in.  One morning I arrived to work and managed to capture the following:

Kincardine Bridge

If there was ever a moment I wish I had my tripod and it was on the evening I was driving home after teaching my regular BodyCombat and CXWorx classes. Coming across the Kincardine bridge and looked out and saw this beautiful scene.

Random Photographs

On a rainy day while we were walking down to Louie Browns I spotted these reflections in quite a big puddle.

While out for work after a shower I noticed the puddles next to the building giving off a really nice reflection.

Louie Browns

Capturing a moment where a member or Louie Browns team in the foreground appears to be serving people in the background through the reflection of the glass.

All the photographs above can be found over on a Flick set : Mini Project 1 – Reflection. Any suggestions, comments are welcomed.

What I learned?

  • Always be prepared i.e. keep tripod in the car.
  • A nice location in Kincardine to take a nice scenic at sunset/sunrise photograph.
  • Getting the right angle of light depending on weather/location can create or easily kill a photograph.
  • Reflection is everywhere if you just look for it.
  • Don’t let the weather put you off.
