Mirrors and Windows

John Szarkowski’s believed in the Mirrors and Windows style, in which the Mirror style mirrors back what the photographer is feeling or what they wanted you to feel. As for the Windows style, is more of reality and how day to day life is all about. The photograpgh on the left shows the mirror style because the whole scene is set up to show a specific emotion, from the lighting and angle, you can get the feeling of a movie scene. Now the photograph on the right is in the open and the shadows of the clouds make it seem like a cloudy day and the field looks dry. In this photograph there is nothing planed out, but more of a in the moment shot, showing reality.
