Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections 2

This week’s photo challenge has me inspired to try and capture images with a mirror.  Must admit i got carried away.  I was thinking along the lines of the surreal, based on an occurrence of a magical illusion where the houses on the hillside behind my house appear floating in mid-air through reflections in my front windows.  So i experimented using dual reflected images of orchids, wanting to capture a sense of the ethereal –  light and floating.  Felt a bit like producing a white rabbit out of a hat.Orchid-reflected

  1. There’s a seriously real feel of three-dimensionality in that reflected image, Liz. I may have just made up a word, but you know what I mean.

    1. Pure trickery! I used two mirrors, at different levels, the shaving mirror was lower and reflecting upwards. I was intrigued by the work of the photographer who set the challenge (can’t recall his name). On his website he has other examples of how he used the 12″ x 12″ mirror. I’ve been meaning to purchase one and play with capturing “hanging” images. I found his shots quite inspiring, figuring out what was at the heart of the image. Clever, but also creative.
