When done well, photos involving reflections have the advantage of capturing and holding viewers’ attentions as they try to figure out the reflection versus the original image. Often, reflective photographs blend the reflection and the actual image seamlessly, and make it difficult to discern where exactly the two meet. Some photos simply capture an interesting abstract reflection of the image or capture a reflection in an unusual spot in the photo. Other photographs are manipulated digitally to create a reflection for an interesting concept.
Some great ideas can be had by viewing other people’s inspiring work with reflective photography.
