A short while back, I shot some self portraits in a short burst of inspiration that kicked in in the night and I had to satisfy the itch. I took my camera (with the 60mm macro lens) and walked into studio and set up my lights and put the camera on tripod and tried out something. The results were supposed to be very dark and weird. When editing though, I mirrored my face and realized it was creating something interesting that I didn’t expect. I decided to toy around with some of these reflections and realized that each piece reminds me of something. Brings certain phrases to my mind. This, I now share with you.
Some of these may be weird, some nasty and some normal. Let me know what you think about them. Under each is the first thing that came into my mind when I saw the finished product. Is it the same for you?
