Chris Marquardt: Reflective

Episode 1783 (1:04:33)

Chris Marquardt

Today's photo segment is all about shooting images with reflections. Chris is always looking for reflections when he shoots. Just about anything can make a reflection if the light is right. Reflections can add a sense of symmetry to a shot or add layers to an image to make it more interesting. But reflections can also bounce light to make your shot worse. Like on water. So use a polarizer to cut the reflection out. To add a reflection, get lower and closer.  If you don't want to appear in a reflection while you're shooting, try wearing black.

Here's some examples - https://tfttf.com/reflections

Our next photo assignment is - X (cross). Take a photo of, about, or otherwise concerning the concept of "X" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "tgxcross" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
