A Reflection Of Who I Am

by Edgar Baird December. 03, 2010 4347 views

So I was, as I have been for several days now, toying about with mirrors, reflections and light. For what ever reason I've needed to photograph such things, so I have. It's been good for me-happy even, despite the fact that most of the images have been composed late at night and sporadically (per the usual) at best. What can I say…that tends to be how I work.

Tonight I was doing much the same as any other night. I had a shot set up so I was toying about with the lighting and generally having a great time. I'd shot a few exposures and was happy with them but on a whim decided to change the camera angle, just because I can. So I did and in doing so completely missed my subject and captured the above image of my mirrored image as I hit the shutter release! Oddly enough (odd because I generally hate all images of me) I liked the shot enough to throw out my little composition and use ME! for today's image. That's two for the year! More than I ever expected really!

That's about enough from me this eve. I'm going to kick back, enjoy an ale or few and just be. I recommend you do the same!

Very good experiment and experience! The curved piece and the red wall in the background really accent the dark silhouette. And you have more whiskers since the last shot of you in the hoodie!
