Inversion / Upside Down Photography

Inversion photography, or taking photos upside down, is a great way to offer a fresh, new view of a subject. We rarely look at the world upside down, so our brains tend to make assumptions about what we see. By inverting a photo, the viewer is often caught off guard by the results.

This works wonderfully if you get a water surface that is still, and becomes like a glass mirror. You can then create some cool results.

What are some other situations where you could imagine an inversion photo working well?
