Aperture:f/5.6
Focal Length:40mm
ISO:3200
Shutter:1/4 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Didn’t Work

A daytime idea spawned by some frisky neurons somewhere in the brainpiece was remembered after work and its creation attempted through a handful of experiments. It had something to do with getting a formal self portrait that included a camera, which then involved a mirror as I’m a single-camera man for now.

It got to about 80% of where it needed to be. Far short of the, oh I dunno, 95% I’d have liked. (100% is insanity, not worth my 100 hours to get there)

Whatever the case, this very rough test shot was a nice little surprise. It had to do with angling a mirror, reducing background clutter, and leaving space to shoot myself straight on against the wall.

Fun to play.
