Although this style
Then-and-now images are much more than just a funny picture. They allow you to visually show how a place has changed over time, which is why such photos are an interesting way to feel the connection with history. Photographer Marie Gardiner in the article describes how to create a photo in a similar style and turn it into an animated GIF. Let’s find out the details.

The sun will significantly reduce the reflection of the main element and the contrast of the scene, which will make your reflection almost completely unreadable.
Based on the particular scene being shot, adjust your own position or the position of your camera, make sure that you do not let the sun into the frame.
