There are a thousand ways to use mirrors in photography – you just need to think outside the box and try to capture mirrors in a good way. When I say in a good way, I mean that you should pay attention to storytelling aspects of your photography, composition, colors, and the relationship between the mirror you're shooting and your main subject. You can even make a mirror itself your main subject, especially if you come across an unusual mirror, perhaps a broken one.
Mirrors are the most common secondary subjects in portraiture, but you can also use them in street and landscape photography. They can be perfect subjects or props in abstract or conceptual photography too.
