My name is Michael Pistono, and I’m a 28-year-old photo enthusiast living in Honolulu, Hawaii. I was recently playing around with a reflection photo when I had the idea of creating another one out of a puddle — one that featured both tall buildings and an airplane. The photo I ended up creating in Photoshop (shown above) went viral online. Here’s a look at how it was made.
This is a pretty cool photograph that illustrates depth of field. The floor on the top appear to be darker than the lower level floors and the upper level floors also appear to be smaller. It is also a super creative photograph b/c it is a reflection of the street.
The halls of this building represent contrast. This hall is dark to begin with. Luckily, the windows provide the light and makes this photo unique. The other element that makes this different is that it was taken in black and white. The shadows are now very noticeable. It has that look that makes it curious.
