ETUDE: Reflections in an Urban Environment

The big city provides hundreds of possibilities for different points of view, playing with lights and shadows, contrasts and various backgrounds. They are all around us, we just have to be able to find them. The shop window is a great reflective surface, and the movement creates the dynamics and mood in the frame. If possible, use a tilting display if the camera has one, for a more interesting point of view. The burst photo mode and tracking AF will help you take a few shots then choose the best one. The black and white vision in this case is appropriate because it graphically conveys the lines of the urban landscape. In the video below you can see the shooting process and the finished shots + a street bonus for the finale 🙂
