This year I plan on progressing my knowledge in the world of photography. I have quite a few books to read to get me started but I thought why not create some little projects around things that interest me or inspire me??
The first project I am going to take on for the next couple of weeks is about reflection.
[blockquote source=”Wikipedia”]In geometry, the mirror image of an object or two-dimensional figure is the virtual image formed by reflection in a plane mirror; it is of the same size as the original object, yet different, unless the object or figure has reflection symmetry (also known as a P-symmetry).[/blockquote]
If you don’t look for something then how do you expect to find it? Reflections are all around us, may it be a puddle, a river, a loch or even a man made material such as a window. If you fancy getting involved please feel free to post a link to your masterpiece(s) in the comments below :). After the mini project has finished I’ll be creating a post in how it went and will share anyone else’s work who got involved.

I thought I would head have a little search to see if there were any videos/blog posts that would give me some good pointers, the following is what I found.
- How to Photograph Reflections for awesome results by Jason Row
- Photo tips for twilight cityscape reflections by Juergen Roth
- Water reflection techniques : how to increase the impact of your landscapes by J Meyer
- How to photograph reflections in water
National Geographic Photography Tip: Work the Reflections
Keep shooting with Bryan Peterson
The reason this came about is I have seen some fantastic examples on Flickr. Some of which are thinking right outside of the box.
Plenty more fantastic examples over on Flickr.
