This is great! It would be a funny fun-house-mirror photo if not for the telltale headlight. This says volumes about stereotypes. Kinda like seeing my reflection in a KitchenAid Mixer or something like that (yes, I love being in the kitchen). :-)

Very cool idea of a reflection. Where was the camera set up? I dont see it in the reflection, which is always my problem when I want to include myself in the reflection.

So did you happen to convince yourself that you 'desperately needed' that car and buy it? Lol!

Really good JinE. I love the distortion.

Jenni, stand the camera a little way from you and point it at where you are reflected. Then go and stand where you want. If you can see the cameras lens when looking into the reflective surface it should get you in the shot.
I'm trying to do something similar, but I can't get what I want. The camera needs to be where my chin is. :lol:

Ferny, I am intrigued. Can't wait to see the reflection you're going to capture with the camera attached to your chin.

To do it I'll have to fake it by taking two shots. One of the object which is to be reflected and one of the object which it is being reflected in. It is impossible to do it any other way.
But that's cheating.

It's only cheating if you get caught
