Awkward Airport Moments
As I’ve mentioned before, I truly love my Going Abstract class from Kim Manley-Ort. It is definitely getting me out of my photography rut- and WAY out of my comfort zone. One of last week’s readings was on reflections, including a section on window reflections. When we went to pick our son up at the airport Friday, I brought my camera along, hoping to find some cool reflections. I was immediately drawn to a window display of large copper portraits of Lady Gaga and Hercules right next to where were waiting for Matt. In my mind, I was picturing an elderly woman or a child reflected in or by Gaga, kind of an ironic statement. Hah! This never happened. And, as always when I do “street” photography, I felt incredibly awkward and sneaky and ridiculous!
I learned right away that position and correct light helps. The lighting wasn’t the best for closeup reflections- and focus is challenging. But it was a learning experience, which I might actually try again.
And here’s Matt!
