Reflection is a great way to spice up a lifeless photo and create a beautiful composition. Using water, mirrors, windows or any other kind of reflective surface can change an image into a work of art.
The best thing about using reflection is that you can turn something really simple and straightforward into something abstract, richer and even mysterious. However, reflection photos can be rather dull, so it’s good to be able to see things in a different way.
