Fantastic, it’ Friday again and the prospect of a whole weekend ahead is just bliss. After dumping my bags at the bottom of the stairs, I grabbed my camera and went on the hunt for something curious or unusual to photograph (especially as it is wet and grey outside).
I have been thinking about reflections, what we see in the mirror isn’t always true or what others see. So I started initially to think about capturing reflections of the camera and tried to find a mirror I could use. After failing miserably, I started randomly snapping things that are sat on my bookcase but not really coming up with anything satisfying . It was by accident that I stumbled upon this little aromatherapy candle in a reflective container.
This was my first attempt at trying to capture reflections. I snapped this a couple of times and even though I got a couple of photographs in focus, I discarded them in favour of this one as I just love the blurriness and distortion of this photograph.
Next, I wanted to capture the lovely lettering and words that where on the edge of the lid.
And finally, I was able to capture a reflection of the camera in the lid. The two pictures have different points of focus, the lid and then the camera lense.
