Mirror Mirror Mirror


Multiple reflections through a Lomo eye.

A simple tip for all you self portrait addicts. Everybody in Lomography has one, that’s right the self portrait of you reflected in a bedroom/bathroom/bedroom ceiling (?!?) and on mirrors. Okay, maybe not the last one, but I was young and I needed the money. Sorry, I digress, Have a look through your house, How many mirrors do you have?. Are they all attached to the wall or can they be moved? If you can take it down then do so. I should point out that the mirrors should be large the bigger the better. Be careful though it’s bad luck to break a mirror and it’s outside we go.

Hopefully it’s a sunny day outside. Position the mirrors and place yourself between them. Take some shots of yourself into infinity. Get your roll developed. And there you have it a shot of you and you and you……..

Oh for extra fun you can put some objects into your shot or just place the mirror around the garden and photograph the reflections.
