Default Unusual shadow//can ypu explain this

This is straight out of the camera. It certainly surprised me but it does make the shot special

Was you husband a reflection in a mirror? Neat shot.

G'day Caryl

Yes it is a nifty shot - and clearly shows the mirroring in the background
To me it seems obvious -

your camera flash has filled in his face, the shadow of the arm has gone backwards onto the mirror to the RHS of the frame, then bounced 90deg to the left onto the 2 paintings / photos in their glass-covered frames

No magic, no silly tweaks, but a good result, cunningly & very expertly done
Regards, Phil
