Webster's dictionary defines reflection as an image that is seen in a mirror or on a shiny surface. It is the return of light or sound waves from a surface. The light that is not reflected is absorbed by a surface. A majority of objects absorb some light that hits them. When the object completely absorbs the light, the surface is black. A surface that is white will reflect all wavelengths of color. The characteristics of the surface will determine what wavelengths of light that are present or absorbed. Based upon this, the suface will have different values of color.
Angle of perspective is also an important aspect of color. Depending upon the angle that a photograph is taken from will determine how light will change the surface of the object. The direction and type of light can improve the object being photograph.
