AAA Photo Session: Reflections


In a mirror, in a puddle or on the surface of a perfectly still lake, reflections offer new perspective and make for especially interesting photos.

Thank You for Participating! (Session Closed) 

Browse through all of the photos we received during April’s reflection-themed Photo Session in the slideshow below, and don’t forget to check our social media channels, where we will be sharing some of our favorites. Select photos may also appear in an upcoming issue of Your AAA magazine.

Reflection Photo Tips

  • Adjust your gaze. You’ll be surprised at all the reflections you can find once you start looking for them. A puddle is just a puddle until you notice it’s reflecting the blossoming cherry tree above it. Look for reflections in everything from shiny cars to storefront windows.
  • Play with composition and angles. Try different ways to compose your photo and a variety of angles. Depending on your approach, reflection photos could be symmetrical or otherworldly and surreal.
  • Plan ahead. Sunrise and sunset are peak times for reflections. Double the color!
