Good reflection photography depends on many factors such as light source, what is being reflected and the reflective substrate – ie: mirror, water, glass, etc., and of course, the creativity of the photographer.

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
