Seeing double is enough to grab anybody's attention, and, as she demonstrated in her TikTok video, Rosie loves creating mirror images with reflections, adding the special effect of symmetry to her content. "I waited for a rainy day so there were plenty of puddles to play with," she explains. "I ended up using myself as a model and found the Canon Camera Connect app incredibly helpful. It was amazing being able to put the camera on a tripod and control all of its settings from the phone in my hand.
"To make the most of water reflections, you generally need to get down quite low – the camera angle was critical, so being able to preview the image on my phone as well as adjust shooting settings made everything really simple and straightforward," Rosie adds.
If you're not using the Camera Connect app to control your camera remotely, you'll most likely be holding it to get a lower-angle shot. In these circumstances, Rosie continues, "a tilting or vari-angle screen makes life easy and means you don't have to kneel or lie down in the wet."
Eletrico also enjoys adding creative style to his water reflection shots. "I poured some water on the floor and switched off all the lights, so it was really dark. The water reflected the image on my phone screen and the effect looks really cool. I used a narrow aperture of f/14 for a greater depth of field, so everything's sharp from the front of the scene to the back."
