Train Station Mirror
I’m well aware that train stations have been photographed to death so when I’m looking for images at a station I want to find something that has possibly never been shot. I think using elements like this mirror give an interesting perspective when shooting in popular locations.
When you’re taking photographs of the familiar, be sure to look around for the shot that you’ve never seen before. Try to bring something new to the world of photography instead of playing off of what you’ve always seen. If you’re not shooting stock photos, move around and see what types of elements you can bring into the image to make it uniquely yours.
How do you approach shooting photographs at well-known landmarks or places? How do you try to avoid the cliches and get a truly unique image?
