    The problem with these mirror shots is that usually, the exposure for the background is several stops different from what is required to ensure my silly visage shows up fairly well. This is a pretty good example of underexposed me against a sky that is actually a little over-exposed.

    Looks like I'm going to have to rig a radio flash trigger or something, or possibly use a light scoop like Leslie's to trigger an off-camera flash.

      Looks like you're on top of the world Patrick.
      I'm sure you're practicing safe strappage =]

      Cindy, Emerald, Rich... thanks!

      Penny... it's the falling head first I'm concerned about!

      Excellent concept. I really like the nice pebbly ground, too.

      now this is the position that i was waiting for - ever tried hanging upside down and taking a photo that way? and all the varieties of gravel, dirt, rocks, carpet, leaves that this mirror lie in are so great too.

      I agree with Esther17...just imagining the scene gives me the giggles! Patrick, resolute, trying to hold and protect his camera while climbing to the top of the dome, as passers-by gawk and wonder what that crazy guy is doing.

      Well... I did wait for some punk-looking kids to pass through before I did my thing. I don't know who else would have seen me... it was after school hours.

      I should have used the 50mm.
