The other day, I was admiring how shiny and reflective the surface of my classical guitar is and, like a good amateur photographer, started thinking of subjects I could reflect it in.

Naturally, my first idea was a narcissistic one, but I couldn’t figure out how to position the camera and lighting to make that work. So then I went simple and just hung the guitar out the window.

This shot isn’t bad, but I really like the next one.

I’m sure there’s a clever Stairway to Heaven reference here, but it ain’t comin’ to me.

I like how you can see all six string reflections, and how the strings all speed off into a vanishing point in the distance. It’s also got a very 2001 monolith feel to it.

  • Great photographs, I am looking to re-design the header of my guitar site, and I think you have inspired me to take a similar shot of mine. I have been thinking of using a crossfade picture, guitar over landscape.
