The two photographs below are of something that I try to keep an eye out for during low light situations where a small amount of intense light entering the scene and hitting surfaces which have mirror like properties. During the golden hour (sunset and sunrise) it is easier to spot these specular highlights and if you make good use of them they can make for some striking black and white photography as they create lots of natural contrast for you.
One other thing that I’d like to bring to your attention is something that crops up a lot. People often say to me “I wish I could take good photos, but I haven’t got a good enough camera”. . .
Well the truth is, even without a ‘good camera’ you really can take nice photographs as its not always the camera that makes the photograph! The photograph taken in the railway station below was taken on my mobile phone around 6 years ago. The other on a Mid range Nikon SLR.
