Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s one of the most classic photo tricks of them all? Reflections! Shooting with mirrors can be tricky, and that’s exactly why they make good props. Nordan captured this image at a park by holding up a small mirror to the lens of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G camera while still focusing on her subject. “I used a mirror, but anything reflective can create an interesting effect—so experiment! Try different shaped mirrors, prisms, or other reflective surfaces,” Nordan says. "Start thinking of yourself as a picture maker and not a picture taker.” As with any experiment, she had to run a few trials before finding the perfect moment. “I shot this image on the 3x telephoto camera, as that will give a more blurred edge to the reflective object you are holding to the camera,” Nordan says.
