6. Orientation. It is possible to play visual games with reflections. Of course reflected images are back-to-front and/or upside-down. You can sometimes use careful cropping or depth of field in order to hide the fact that it is a reflection at all. Also you can try turning your finished photograph upside-down for instance, to see how that changes its effect visually.
7. Mix reflections on glass with information visible through glass. Some of my favourite photographs of reflections are those that successfully mix reflected images with details in the scene that are not. For instance, if you shoot through a window of a bus say, then you can comprise an image of reflected images behind you, as well as details inside the bus and even things through the opposite window of the bus. With patience, random juxtapositions can develop to create intricate and sometimes surreal compositions.
8. Vanity. Photographs of people looking their own appearance in mirrors and windows can be funny and poignant. Extreme patience would no doubt be needed but a photographer might produce an interesting set of images of people "checking themselves out" in passing windows.
9. Still water, or rippled? Vastly different reflections will be created in bodies of liquid, depending on its stillness. Glass-like liquid surfaces will create perfect mirror images while gently moving and rippled water can give a more "impressionist" feel to a reflection.
10. Clean your surfaces. Potentially good photographs of reflections can be let down if the mirrored surface is dirty or dusty. In particular when strong lighting is used, dust on reflective surfaces can become a real problem.[Source]
