On photographing images in sunglasses
To get a changed look of a photographic composition, one way is to see it in sunglasses which have convex reflecting surfaces. You can always carry sunglasses to get fresh photos and a new view of your composition.

EVEN IF you are not carrying your own sunglasses, often you can find a few people sporting sunglasses; this can help you to provide the reflection of an event they are watching. Take this opportunity to take the photograph of the reflected image by talking to the person with sunglasses.

If possible, use a tripod for the camera or a firm rest for it. Set the camera at f/16 or smaller aperture for greater depth of field. Expose for the reflection and use low shutter speed if the subject is still.

Another thing to be kept in mind is that the subject should be lightened and sunglasses should be in shade to have a clear and bright image in the convex curvature of the glasses.

In the inset picture, the house is sunlit and the person wearing the goggles is standing in the shade to give a reasonable reflection of the subject to be photographed. The camera was put on macro setting for taking the photograph.
