No matter what we’re doing whilst out with a camera, we should always be looking for what there is around us. It’s so easy to head out with the intention of photographing something in particular, and then miss what could easily be the photo of the day.

Last week i helped my mate Gary do a fashion shoot for his son’s girlfriend. It was for part of her degree course at university. Whilst setting up the model in one location, there was large puddle that got in Gary’s way. As Gary found himself splashing around in it, i found myself looking for the reflections. In the moments when the water was nice and still, i took the opportunity to get a few decent photos. I think this one is the best of them.


A rather lovely reflection of Gary's flash gun and shoot through brolly.

It’s always worth keeping an eye out for that “something” extra!



About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
