Day #132 @ Photography Project 365

One very useful photography technique for me is using reflections.

I often find myself desperately looking for an exciting object, perfect lighting, excellent composition in a dull scene. I presume that some of you have that same problem. In times like these, I look out for reflections.

There are so many ways of using reflections creatively. Just search for "reflections" at Flickr. You'll be impressed with some of the amazing photos that show up. I sure was.

I took this photo inside the ferry on Lake Ammersee.

Ohhhh, I also love reflections although I take very few shots using reflections. I need more hours in a day!

I love what you've accomplished here, wonderful shot!

Thanks, Darlin. Do share your shots with reflections.

I'll do that when I get time to get out playing in the world, a few more short weeks of practicum then a few weeks of freedom! Woohooo! :-) I can snap photos til my heart is content, well I'm hoping to be able to.

I love photos like this! They have such depth and dimension to them. So much more there than what a short glance can comprehend.

Great shot Joel - nice pattern on the window with the reflection in the background. I like reflections and have a number of them on my blog.

Thanks, Rick, Kyla. Reflections do indeed allow more to be packed into a single shot.
