67: MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL

Today's idea seems relatively simple, shoot into a mirror and catch as many duplicates of the person as possible. Problem is, to see (or photograph) all those duplicates, you have to shoot directly into the mirror. Thus you catch not only your subject but yourself and the camera. Just like all those crappy social networking profile photos shot in the bathroom mirror, it's all about the angles.

So we stood our big mirror on the easel in front of the tall skinny mirror, while the subject stood in the middle. The shooter had to stand over the big mirror and angle themselves out of the shot as best as possible. All being lit with one soft box.

Question is, are we real or are we their reflection?
