Square Volume Three: Reflections

Welcome to the third series of workshops where we photograph ourselves in square format.

Like in the previous workshop, it takes a bit of skill to master square shooting but it has a huge potential to be very creative. So, why not give it a try!

Square Volume Three: Reflections is the third of three series and is dedicated to the pioneer photographer of selfie photography; Vivian Maier. Here you'll be exploring black & white self-portraiture with available light (NO FLASH), and your task is to photograph yourself through a reflection of glass, water, shiny chrome, steel, aluminum, and mirrors. A shadow of yourself is also allowed.

LOCATION: Canary Wharf around Jubilee Park is a perfect location to explore the variety of steel and glass buildings surrounding the park. There are plenty of reflective surfaces at ground level for you to try to copy Vivian Maiers's work.

Here's a URL youtube link for you to have a look a little history of Vivian Maier incredible square format street photography and her creative way to use refections for her self portraits :
