The last couple of days I have been sitting in ‘3D land’ rendering out images of a new house that we are designing at work. Like always, I have been spending what feels like forever in the material settings for the glazing. I am trying to capture the best, most life like reflections.
As the client has a fixation with the park (that is across the road) I wish to use the reflections to invert the view. Below are a selection of surreal landscapes that do similar things with reflections.
“World in a bubble project” by photographer Tom Storm is another beautiful example of reflected landscapes . Instead of water he uses floating bubbles. He has captured many famous landscapes including the Washington Memorial and Time Square, creating little contained worlds.
I really appreciate the temporal qualities in his images. By using bubbles as his medium you can only imagine the very short moment in time that we are witnessing. This one moment in time captures a landscape made up of many moments in time.
It is an interesting idea and his execution is immaculate.
