Sunset photos is a very common project among different photographers. Taking photos during the golden hours is the best choice to get dramatic effect with vibrant colors.
But what id we altered the project a little bit and add to it a creative approach? Bing Wright is an American photographer born in Seattle in 1958 and currently lives in New York. Bing studied art history in Columbia University in New York.
His unique project is to take sunset photos through the reflection of broken mirror. Ordinary shots can be turned to a unique visual experience when seeing them through the lines of broken mirrors (How to Capture Dramatic Sunset Photographs).
The mirror lines and small changes in the surface angles produce interesting results for different sunset photos based on the glass fractures. It reminds me with the cubism style in Picasso paintings (Sunset Photography: Breathtaking Examples).
This project points out to the idea that photographer is not a copier. Instead, the perfect photographer is an artist that has a unique approach to view things around him. He or she sees things in a different way than most people do. Merging the professional usage of the digital camera with creative ideas can produce even more creative photography projects (Simply Breath-taking Reflection and Landscape Photography Using a Mirror).
The sunset photos in Bing’s project above is a good example for this approach. All you need to do is to learn from different projects how to think outside the box.
Bing Wright participated in my solo and group exhibitions between 1986 to 2011, most of took place in New York City. His photographs were featured in different publications including books and magazines. You can learn more about his and his work by visiting his website.
