Reflection - Photography Tip #6

I love shooting things that reflect. This post is a sampling of architectural reflection. I find it interesting because it creates visual trickery. Especially on the first photograph, it's very difficult to figure out which buildings are reflected and which ones are not. I'm also drawn to images that warp the reflection and abstracts.


There are reflections everywhere. Take your camera out and look for reflections. They can be found in buildings, water, mirrors, cars and many other things. Look for interesting images inside the reflection, such as buildings, trees, animals, sky, streets, people, yourself. Even you.

To give you a sample other than a building, this is a reflection of me shooting my reflection against a wall, with a bonus reflection of my shadow in the river water. This reflection was made possible by the sun.

Grab your camera and reflect.
