I've had some sort of "reflection" shot with my sunglassesfor in my mind a while. finally pulled it off and a self-portrait at the same time





Just looked like a miniature forest

The reflection is very, very good. Chuckled for quite a while about that one.

Yes, I like these very much. Welcome - I see you are new (unless that's a glitch with the new board). The sunglasses shot is great, and the miniature forest is cute.

Great job on both photos! But pray tell, how did you manage the sunglass reflection stunt? Timer? Remote? Very, very long cable?

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments.

It took several setups from several different angles, a tripod, 10 sec timer, and a bit of luck.

10 sec may seem like a long time, but to get in a hamock, keep it from swining, then look relaxed wasn't as easy as i thought it would be.

Chalk one up for digital cameras. Could you imagine trying that with film then waiting for it to be developed only to find out none were any good?
