Refkections / Mirrors
Technique - Technique


The surface of many materials don't just reflect the color of the material itself but also reflect the shapes from other objects. Water is certainly the most common natural "mirror" that comes to mind but polished metal or glass work just fine as well. Obviously mirrored objects offer some interesting photographic opportunities.

An exact mirroring of the main subjects is often not necessary. Especially with night scenes the contours of a subject are lost but some rough reflections still offer a pretty neat impression. The following picture just shows the reflections of the light source but not the form of the sky scrapers.
