    Default U.phantasticus on black mirror


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I had an extra piece of glass laying around, so I made a black mirror and tried some shots last night. Here are some of what I got of Azazel, our male satanic leaftail.

    I had to take about 100 photos to get the camera and flash set good enough to get these...and they aren't exactly what I was hoping for, but they turned out pretty good. It's going to take some more practice to light the subject as well as bring out the reflection as best as possible.

    Let me know what you think.

    I used my Canon T2i with the 60mm Macro lens. Camera settings were f/9.0, ISO 100, and shutter 1/100. My flash was set up as a slave at 1/8 power from about 2 feet away. Seems to work, but I think I need more lighting and maybe a different photography setup to make these even better.

    Very nice. I like the mirror. It gives you a nice uniformity with the reflection.

    Thanks guys! It's surprisingly tricky to get these kinds of shots to turn out right, so I'm glad these worked out okay.
