Downtown LA. Mirrored.

I have been playing a lot with the technique of mirroring. It’s not just for cheesy music videos you know. It turns out – it can be one amazing form of art. Try it on some of your photos.

Here is my latest. It is one of my favorites.

  2. Nice effect. I really like the purple tones in the image. A couple of questions. What was below the city skyline in the original image and why did you choose not to mirror the clouds?

    • Thanks! Have really been playing with a few key styles when editing photographs. Adding blues (or in this case on a night photo it becomes purple) into the shadows really helps to make it unique but still realistic.

      I posted the pre-mirror image for you on this post.

      Choosing not to mirror the clouds was done because I felt when I did it took some of the artistic quality away and made it appear to be just a mirror. When I gave my mind something to think about, thats when it became a little more about the art for me.

      Thanks for your interest!
