How to Use Reflections to Make Your Photos Seem "Out of This World"

Keep an eye out for reflections all around you.

It really doesn't take any extra photo knowledge. There are no tricks to these photos. All of them are out of the camera. I have edited them for color or to black-and-white. Seeing reflections all around you can be an awesome way of put something different in your portfolio.

LOOK AT THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN OR SIDEWAYS

Sometimes seeing things upside down or sideways can make a more interesting photo.

I turned these images upside down or sideways in my editing software. I shot them right side up, but afterword, I turned them upside down, because this is how I saw them in my head.

LOOK AT THE WORLD THROUGH DIFFERENT EYES

Sometimes looking at muddy puddles or different reflective services that could bring a different "world" into your photos.

Reflections are all around us, on wall, on mirrors. Museums, zoos and aquariums are great places for glass and surfaces.

Here is my son's face in the reflection of the train glass.

Sometimes we need to bend down and get our pants dirty a little bit to get better images.

here is another version of this picture.. I just turned it black and white.

They were both taken at the Virginia Living Museum.

This shot was at the Virginia Living Museum. Aquariums are great places for reflections and glass surfaces.

Sometimes taking a picture of random puddles might be interesting.

LOOK AT THE WORLD THROUGH MIRRORS.

Using mirrors is an interesting way to tell a story

I took this photo in a November wedding with the bride doing her make up and hair right before the event.

Here is one of the bride's maid getting ready for the wedding with the same mirror.
