Take a reflection photo
Using reflections in photography can make amazing effects and beautiful images. When light rays bounce off a completely smooth surface, such as a still pool of water, a mirror, or even something like a shop window, we are able to see a very clear reflection on the surface. Once you start looking for reflections, you will find them everywhere! Learn more about this type of photography by visiting the “Take a Reflection Photo” challenge on Wizard School. Then, find a mirror, rippling water, or a glass and try your hand at reflection photography!
Explore art and photography in nature
Andy Goldsworthy is a British artist who has made hundreds of amazing creations. Visit the “Natural Photography” challenge to learn about how he works with natural materials. Then, create your own masterpiece using items you find in nature. The beach is a perfect place for nature art, but your own backyard can be just as good. Even sticks can surprise us when they are arranged in clever ways! When you’re done, take a photo of your natural work of art and share with a friend in Wizard School!
