“Marine City, Haeundae: A Reflection Photo Hotspot”

Nighttime reflection photos featuring Haeundae Marine City are often seen as iconic representations of Busan. The charm of these photos lies in capturing reflections on a wet surface, resembling a lake. While the popularity of nighttime reflection photography has waned, there was a time when this spot was a bustling hotspot for photographers. People would often be seen taking photos with water sprayed on the ground.

“Capturing Reflection Photos at Night”

Taking reflection photos is quite straightforward. Simply wet the ground thoroughly to create a lake-like appearance. Then, find a suitable composition and use long exposure at night to capture the reflection photo, allowing for sufficient light absorption.

Reflection photos can also be taken during daylight hours. Daytime offers the advantage of ample natural light, eliminating the need for long exposure.
