Artist Opening featuring the puddle reflection photography of Michael Graham. Hosted by the wonderful people of WHIP Salon.
The current collection consists of images that capture city life in the form of water reflections. The images are made by placing the camera very near the water and waiting for an interesting subject to enter the frame. All edits are made in Lightroom and in most cases the images are presented upside down to shift the focal point to the reflection. See more at monograham.com
