Earlier this week, I discussed water photography and how to use water in different ways to make your photos pop!

You can read that blog post here —> 7 Clever Ways to Capture Water In Your Photography.

But today, I just want to share with you some ideas from around the internet (who are we kidding, Pinterest) that use water (and other things) to make reflections in their photography.

There are many pictures that just amaze me and help me get inspiration for my own water and reflection photography.

But water isn’t the only way you can get reflections in your photography. Mirrors, glass, cds, or any other shiny or reflective surface will work just fine.

So check out these images and if you find some you really love, go follow the photographer on Pinterest for more inspiration.
