I like taking pictures of the reflections I see in the glass in the various buildings around me. These shots were taken over a couple of days using the Sigma 60mm, Olympus 12-40, and Olympus 75mm. I also used my Olympus EM1 and my Olympus EM5 to get the shots. The biggest difference between the Olympus EM1 and the EM5 is that the EM1 has no anti-alias filter on it. If I look close I can tell which camera took which photo only because I know. If I asked someone else I doubt they could tell. In addition this is the first time I have shot a series in a while not plant related. It felt good to produce something that was more than a one off. The lake shots I took annoyed me so I have left them alone and will attempt to tackle them again when I am not so attached to them. Until then enjoy the glass and the buildings.
This one was the evening sky hitting the glass. I cheated a bit with the blue color in the glass but I knew the effect I wanted out of it.
This one almost didn’t make it. It’s got some flaw as the Sigma 60mm has some weird focus issues at time but I really like the sunset capturing the bottom right hand corner I just left it in the group.
This is a hotel near me. I saw the light hitting it one morning while I was putting fuel in my car and thought it would be a cool shot. So when I saw the light hitting it I had the cameras with me and just stopped and took the shot.
I just like how the building changes shape and how the light hits it one way and the clouds reflect the other way.
This is the same building as above but a different corner and I like how it just reflected back in on itself.
This is the reflection of the sister to the building above. This one sits 4 lanes away and acts as a mirror for anything across the street.
Same building as above but a different side. The storm was moving in and the wind was picking up as I shot this. Just loved how it caught the clouds.
