Mirrored effect

Yay for Friday!!!!  I hope you guys have had a great week and looking forward to the weekend? I know I am 🙂
So for this week I haven’t really been taking that many more photo’s apart from a few product shots that I did in my make shift studio at home, however, this post is about another little challenge that I got round to trying out. It’s nothing amazing beyond any stretch of imagination. It was just so I could see how it was done and if I could do anything with it. What I wanted to try and learn was doing the ‘mirrored’ effect with your image in photoshop. I googled on how to do this and found such an easy, well explained article which went through it with you step by step. Here is the link – Flip, rotate and mirror.
I tried this out yesterday on a old image that I took a couple of days ago of the oil and water mixture. My camera settings for this were f3.5, ISO 100 and shutter speed of 1/160.IMG_3720.jpg
I took this picture into photoshop and followed the instructions on how to apply the mirror effect. After trying it a couple of times to get the right look, this is was the result.merging layers bubbles.jpg
It was so much fun, trying to get different rotation and effects not to mention all the different blend modes that you could work with. I tried it again this morning with some fairly newish images.I shall give you the before and after just so you can see the difference.


As you can see, complete transformation from just and image to artistic patterns.
I am quite in love with this now and I can see me doing more of these.
As I said at the start of my post, it’s nothing amazingly new. I bet all of you on here already knew how to do this. I was quite excited on learning this and loved the results.
Well that’s my little creative post for this week. Thanks for stopping by and I will catch you next time 🙂
