week 16 "reflection"

 
 
 
this week's contest is "reflection". and just as the theme states the picture must have a reflection of a face in it. mitch and i worked together to come up with the most creative "reflection" we could think of. again, we threw around some ideas, but they seemed too common. so, we decided to get a little crazy. okay, not really "crazy" just "different"!

for this shot we went outside to utilize the natural (and bright) light to get the effect we needed. we put the macro lens on the camera and got up close and personal! i held a square mirror in front of my face so you can see my face reflecting in the mirror. but then we took it one step further...
 
mitch got behind me. with the camera mounted on a tripod looking over my shoulder, he manually focused on my eye. if you look closely, you can see, reflected in my eye, the mirror with the reflection of my face in it. does that make sense?

pretty cool, huh?

same idea as above, but i took the picture of mitch's eye. in the reflection of his eye you can see me behind the camera and kale'a next to me in the white shirt.

I thought about doing this but honestly thought there was no way to really get a clear picture. You've proven me wrong! This is incredible. I love it!

Very nice! Did you have to take lots of photos to get these two? Did you do any other refections. Great teamwork.

I like the pics, but I am even more impressed with how well your eyebrows are tweezed...not a stray hair anywhere! How do you do that?
