Challenge: Self Portrait In A Crowd (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX
Date: Feb 18, 2013
Aperture: f/10
ISO: 250
Shutter: 1/30s
Galleries: Portraiture, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Feb 19, 2013

Single shot taken in a dark room with mirrors on all sides. I suspended a flash with a gridded snoot on the upper right mirror to control the light fall off as much as possible. The flash is cropped out.

Really like the way it came out because I really didn't anticipate the reflections would show all the different profiles. I envisioned the reflections all being the same reflection; the flash side reflection repeated over ad over again the way you typically see the effect. It didn't occur to me that the mirrors in a four sided room would actually pick up how the profile would look from all angles front, back and both sides, or that they'd produce them in a circular pattern.

But, that's what it does.

Best challenge so far. Been fun. Thanks for the great comments. I'm glad so many folks appreciated it.

How fun! There's no way I can get to everyone. Thanks for all the kind remarks. Much appreciated. Was beginning to lose faith I'd ever post something that could ribbon.

Congratulations on a terrific shot and well deserved ribbon. It makes my head hurt trying to figure out the angles that all the mirrors were placed. Great job.
