Inspiration Sheet: Reflections

Welcome
This is the inspiration sheet that I’d written once before, but my PC crashed losing the file. Let’s see if the second attempt lasts a little longer.
When I teach photography or lecture on photography on board ships, I talk about the “rules” of composition. One of those rules is “Repetition”. Reflections can be thought of as a special case of repetition, where the same subject appears twice in the image due to its reflection.
Of course, there’s much more to reflections than just repeating the subject. Reflections can be the subject in their own right. They can also be a means of drawing attention to the subject other than being a repeat of it.
So in this Inspiration Sheet we will look at different ways that reflections can improve the images that we create.
Keep making great images,
Ian
