Eight of my favorites reflections, mostly shot in 2011. I feel the series was complete around the end of summer, but I keep on shooting those upside down reflections. I just love it.
They’re all untouched, except the 5th one (but it’s still a very light cropping). I shoot it as I frame it, cropped a lot, they wouldn’t make sense. It’s about seeing the reality the other way round on purpose. It’s not about shooting blind before cropping a lot.
Anyway, it’s fun trying because it’s challenging to frame something upside down while you focus “upside up” - you have to try to see what I mean.
For those who wonder, there’s not much editing in it either, with strong contrast lenses, a bit of saturation, the occasional weirdness of the Leica M8 sensor and you’re good to go.
I post those eight because they work well together. I avoided posting wide and b&w ones for the sake of comprehensiveness. May be I’ll post a b&w one soon.
I don’t have a lot of time right now, but I have lots of stuff to post and write about. I was foolish enough to buy a M Monochrom and boy it’s quite a body. Not for everyone, for sure, but quite spectacular, imho. I’ll post a quick hands on and a few pics this week. For those who don’t work this week-end, enjoy. For those who work, like me: courage! :-)
