Reflection photography Toronto

Reflection photography and the art of seeing double

There are more than a few people out there who think that reflection-based photography is unimaginative and overplayed, but when done correctly, the results can be just the opposite. Mirrored images often create something akin to a trompe l'oeil effect, which is at once both confusing and delightful as the viewer eventually pieces together precisely what it is that he's looking at. Details or features that might otherwise be overlooked come to fore as we stop and pause over these double-edged images.

Here's a selection of some of the best reflection photos from the blogTO Flickr pool to help pass a bit of time on a lazy Saturday. Enjoy! Lead photo by John Ferri. For more like these, see our previous post on the art of street puddle photography.
