PHOTOS: Saudi lensman documents trip capturing reflections
Saudi photographer known as the ‘King of reflections’ uses his mobile phone to capture the images
Saudi photographer known as the ‘King of reflections’ documented his days of travel by capturing the reflections of various sceneries through his mobile phone.
Yousef Al-Sudais explains to Al Arabiya.net the way he captures his pictures is by placing the mobile lens in a horizontal position or vertical to the body surface of the reflector.
“You need a certain type of atmosphere and nature to help produce the photo,” he said.
Al-Sudais shared a moment he had in London while taking one of the pictures: “I was sitting on the floor trying to place my mobile phone near the water, seemingly oblivious to the people around me, and Arabs walked past me thinking I don’t understand Arabic. And they were saying: ‘Poor man, sitting in the cold and rain on the ground trying to capture a pointless image!’ I got up smiling, showing them the image of the reflection, and I said calmly, take a look at this pointless image! They were impressed and expressed their apology, asking me to send a copy of it.”
