It was cold, foggy and dark outside on my train ride into work this morning. The train was about as full as it normally is at this time of day and I was able to get my preferred seat by the window. The train departed and went to the next stop, where more people got on and I was about to fall into the same habit of staring into my phone, when the reflections in the window caught my eye.
That would be an interesting picture, I thought. I almost dismissed the idea, forgetting my vow to be more creative this year, but something stopped me. Having my phone out already, I quickly switched to the camera and snapped a few shots, then got my Canon out and snapped a few more.
The red coats worn by two of the passengers in front of me were what really caught my eye in the reflections. The contrast against the darkness outside of the train made it pop. The images caught by both cameras were interesting, specifically in how they captured the reflection of the passengers inside the car and the action and landscape outside the car.
And Live Photo effects on the iPhone…what can I say, I’m still digging this!
Not only am I excited to be learning and creating with my new toys this year, I am happy to be getting out of my own head and being present in the moments.
Yay for ME!
