Tip of the Week: Photograph Puddles


Choose puddles that must be clean because sometimes you might find some distracting garbage within the puddle that takes away from the image’s composition; dark, because the lighter the puddle liquid is, or the ground colour beneath it, the less contrast and reflection you get. By dark, I also mean a puddle that is located within a shade. I have found that puddles with direct contact with the sun tend to reflect less of the subject than I desire, once again, due to the low contrast that direct sunlight creates.
