Distorted reflections can give your image that final touch that it needs to make it
interesting. Apart from that, they can also be photographed alone, becoming the main
subject of the photograph.
Usually flat, reflecting surfaces, such as windows, mirrors or calm water, are the
only way one can obtain an undisfigured mirrored image. The reflection becomes
distorted by any other surface. (Colour alterations, imperfections of the surface,
perspective adaptions, form twists, etc. can hereby occur).
Distorted mirrored images can be acquired on any shiny surface. However,
the best results will on the whole be acquired when using neutrally coloured (for
instance, black or grey), shiny or wet objects.
When photographing reflections as a main subject, keep in mind that the colour
changes, produced by the reflective surface, may be very acute. It's also
important to make sure that the amount of provoked visual distortion is adequate.
