After a rainy day I often take my camera and I take a walk on the streets/squares of my city: I like to take photos of reflections from puddles. To achieve a good result I use a wide angle lensand I put the camera at ground level ( better if the camera has a tilting display )… but it’s not enough! To obtain a different picture ( from other millions of the same type ) we need some fantasy : in my example a friend that helped me to have a drop in the puddle….
With a “little” detail
I think that the second one is better…do you agree?
Note: Amphitheater Square in the city of Lucca, Italy
I don’t like to take photos in a “standard way”:it’s very easyto go photograph the sea during the summer, while it’s more difficult do it in winter( and not in Black&White … uuufffff such a banality!! I like B&W but the sea during winter in black&White is a very commonplace. Following this “philosophy” some years ago I decided to take photos in a desert Luna Park during a rainy day…
You don’t need a great camerato take a great photo as you don’t need a big paintbrushto color a big painting. I have a question: “how was the giant Goliath killed?”, with a big cannon? No, with a little rock. Last sunday I took the following pictures with a little compact camera, a Sony RX100M3, not with a Nikon D5 or a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.
I had a big help: the morning lights! 🙂 But I had to wake very early in the morning..and the “good light” last few minutes… In the evening I edited the RAW files them with Lightroom.
“Take the rose when it’s time, that the time, you know, flying and the same flower that blooms today, tomorrow will wither” ( Carpe Diem, italian poet Orazio)
I saw, at sunset, this closed beach house ( it’s winter ) … I imagined and I pre-visualized a “final” photograph…that I realized using Lightroom. But It’s not important the toll ( i.e. Lightroom or Photoshop ), but the final result that you want to reach. Of course it’s important the beauty or the interest of the moment that you want to capture!
