Reflection Photography face and leaves

Myth: Waiting by Cathy Larkin Photos (c) 2008 – 2012

I am currently exploring other show and gallery opportunities  for my reflection photographs and the new work I am doing.

Please bear with me while this site undergoes a face lift. I will be making changes to improve the look, feel and functionality of the site.

I had my first solo photography show in November and December 2012: Reflected Nature: Myth, Mask & Other Worlds  at the Swarthmore Community Center in Swarthmore, PA, (the same building as the Swarthmore Public Library). thanks very much to Michele Southworth and the Swarthmore Friends of the Arts who hosted the show.

Although it is a frequent question, this work is not digitally manipulated in a program like Photoshop to “get” the effect shown, nor are they double exposures. The images are creative reflections of nature, and sometimes of the human form, reflected in lakes, ponds, streams, water and even ice.  I am also beginning to experiment with other reflective surfaces, old building windows, cars, pots and pans, Christmas tree ornaments etc, although this show was primarily my nature work. I do often rotate and images 90 or 180 degrees to enhance the reflection effect. I do occasionally lighten or darken an image, or do the digital equivalent of the old darkroom techniques of burning and dodging, or cropping…but the majority of images are straight from my digital camera.Cathy Larkin Mask Autumn's Guardian stream side reflection photography autumn colors
