See it coming, and photograph it!

I took this photo during one of our regular monthly photo walks.

I saw the possibility of a photo using the reflection in the back of a car, then noticed this woman wearing a red coat to go with the red of the rear light. For a brief few moments there was no one else walking past, so i crouched down to wait. She stared at me wondering what i was doing, which helps the photo. The way she was watching me gave a couple of the others on the photo walk quite a laugh.
There’s a real beauty to seeing the potential of a photo, and then managing to actually capture it.
The Decisive Moment!

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.
