I am always intrigued how a camera records an image that is different from what I thought I would get when I took the picture. The images are often remarkably different. The above are examples. We bought a new car in a color called sunset. I went out into the garage in the morning to get something and I noticed the way the sun was shining through the window onto the car so I went back and got my camera and took the above images. They look different from what I thought they would. The color is correct, but I didn’t notice the extent of the reflections and highlights when I was taking the pictures. And I certainly didn’t see my distorted reflection when I took the picture. I thought that I was just capturing the color.
The lesson to be learned … take lots of pictures. You might be surprised by what you see in the image. I often find birds, etc. that I didn’t know I photographed and often find that the reflections, tones, etc. surprise me.
