Look for reflections to create an impact in a posed image. You can find reflective surfaces everywhere- they don’t always have to be a mirror. In fact I try to avoid mirrors as much as possible because that is what most other photographers would use.
Look for any reflective surface that may carry the image- glass, water, tabletop, reflective wall etc…
In this image, the indoor pool was off the lobby of the hotel. We were waiting to leave via shuttle and I saw the opportunity. The image was also special for the guys because most of them were college swimmers.
As always, I don’t try to pose the boys too much. Just get them to huddle and they will take of the rest with their body language. It was a quick shot setup and we were on the way.
Look for reflective surfaces- they can be found everywhere. They add a lovely dimension to the composition.
