There is something special in water reflections, whether you are trying to create something abstract or to make a portrait really unique and very special.
I really love to photograph people and to try create / capture something special. The Photo-shoot might be in my North Shore photography studio or any other indoor or outdoor location around Auckland.
This, however, pushed my photography skills right up to the edge because I wanted to create something special based off an old portrait and not the person itself. To me it symbolises an everlasting relationship with a special person. Jumping into PhotoShop and simply manipulating an old photo was not an option.
This is the outcome: A Portrait of my father who passed away 25 years ago. He is still out there, looking after me, behind the rain drops.
This image was captured using his old photo with setup in my studio. These are indeed real water drops and not a PhotoShop manipulation.
When I finished capturing that special memento, I wanted to explore other possibilities and capture the conflict of water and fire in a similar fashion.
The second photo is much more abstract, capturing the colour and warmth of the fire through the chill of the clear water:
Photography is truly limitless! 🙂
This photo looks fantastic as a desktop wallpaper so if you would like to use this on your PC or Mac (fantastic on 5K screen!) please feel free to contact me and I will email it to you.
Stay safe and enjoy those precious moments!
