Reflections were really hard to shoot, but once I got the technique down, I had a lot of fun with it!
“Flowers in the fog”F-stop: F/36 Shutter: 1/30th sec ISO-3200 55mm focal length
f/36, 1/30 sec shutter, ISO-3200, 55mm focal length
Catching one’s own reflection is a lot more challenging, this shot probably took me about two hours to get right. Not only did I want my face fully in the mirror’s frame, I wanted that to be the only area in focus.

Architecture was a bit easier in concept, but took a great deal of patience. Because you can’t ask your “talent” to move, you have to reposition (sometimes a considerable distance), and have to wait for the right lighting to come to you.
I waited probably the majority of the day to find the lighting I liked for this building. If it isn’t just right, the details of the building just don’t “pop” like this.

In order to get this “looking up” angle I had to literally lay on the ground and tilt myself at about a 20 degree angle. Gave me a cramp after a while, but it made the shot.
