Big Mirror

Well, the first mirror picture of me.

There are lots of problems posing and taking pictures in the mirror - notably finding the right bit of the image to focus on. If you point the camera straight at the mirror it will tend to focus on the reflection of the lens. With a wide open aperture this makes everything else of of focus.

Composition is another problem. Having to remember what is going to happen when the shutter release goes is part of the fun of photography.
