Ahmed Thabet: Reflection Photography

by  Editor Carla DLM

Reflection photography, also referred to as mirror photography, is when you use reflective surfaces to create an artistic scene. Using reflection in photography can lead to some amazing effects and beautiful images. Using shiny surfaces, water, windows, or any kind of reflective surface can change any image into a work of art. Of course creativity plays an important role using reflections. The final result depends only on the photographer being able to see things with his own artistic view, rather than seeing only one part of a larger whole.

Ahmed Thabet, an Egyptian doctor based in Kuwait, specializes in black and white architectural photography. Besides his architectural captures, he has also worked in landscapes and wild photography. Ahmed didn't study photography professionally; however his splendid works radiate his passion for it. In  the following images, Ahmed captures different angles of his subjects using reflection. Take a look, he really masters it.
