Mirror Series Challenge!

The challenge will begin Sunday, May 13 and finish Saturday, May 19. Your pics should be dated on or between these dates. That gives you seven (7) days to get your shots.

You will need to post THREE (3) pics during this time and each pic must include...
1. light and shadow in your composition
2. your WHOLE mirror

ONE of your pics MUST be in BLACK and WHITE
ONE of your pics MUST include a PARTIAL SELFIE with you and your camera in the reflection.

Please tag your posts "sc-mirror" so I may (with the help of some great folks here) find and pick the best of the series for voting. I think we can all do it in a regular post. I don't think there's enough willing participants to warrant posting in discussions.

Just look at the beautiful light on those trees above! LOL! I don't like selfies either, so you get the idea!

I know many of you can really do some marvelous work and put my little series to shame! Let's see those gorgeous mirror shots! Any questions, just holler?

@maggiemae @yonnie @sanfil @karenann @kerristephens @beckys @rmkgreene @cdonohoue @copperheadglass @cindyrez @grannysue @melissapike @swguevin @wenbow @mantha @joeboxster and anyone else that wants to participate!

maa!,.. you look topless!..but nice shot tho you pretty good with those mirrors

Your picture is great as per usual, you seem to have beautiful lighting always, much better than our two months of grey so far!

Great camera holding technique BTW!!! I was just ranting about this subject to my partner much to her dismay! I do not believe the snobbery that surrounds it. There is no correct way in my eyes, I wonder what they would say if they saw my technique, I use walls and the floor as my hand or this one would really get there goat, sometimes I just hold my camera in a position that I think is there abouts and I don't compose or even use the viewfinder, RAH! :)

Keep em coming, monochrome suits you

@traciwood Thank you, Traci!

@lizzy_lu123 Thank you, Lisa!

@phil_howcroft Thank you, Phil! You have 7 days to take just 3 shots. Are you sure? Sounds like it's doable to me. =)

@sugarmuser Thank you, Sharon!

@joeboxster LOL! No, I really do have on a tank top! Thank you, Joe!

@teamoliver You are too kind, Eddie! Thank you for your lovely comments and I really don't think there's a right way to hold the camera either, as long as you don't get fingers in the way - what's the difference?!!!

@yonnie Thank you, Yvonne! You can do it! I know you can!

@groovygirlrn Thank you, Sheri!

@kerristephens Thank you, Kerri!

@swguevin Aww! Thank you, Sheila! I want to see some great mirror shots!

@mantha Thank you, Sam! You can make your own light and shadow in the house if you have to, ya know?!

This photo came out fantastic, Maggie. I love it in B&W. How do you take a photo without you being in it and just having what you set up for it. I only have one mirror that may work but has decoration like stained glass close to the edge and all the way around.

@darsphotos Thank you, Darlene! Appreciate your comments! You have to shoot at an angle! Place the mirror on the ground, walk around, look at the mirror, see all the different views, use the best vantage point! You'll figure it out!
posted May 12th, 2012  
@marlboromaam Thank you, Maggie, will try it out and see how it works. On partial selfie will have that edge on it also. Can I take all three photos on one day?
posted May 12th, 2012  
Beautiful selfie and gorgeous trees and lighting! Watching what everyone posts will be fun!
posted May 12th, 2012  
@darsphotos Sure! As long as it's within those dates!

@karenann It will be fun! And I hope to see your mirror shots, too! Thank you, Karen!

Such another wonderful mirror shot above! I'll have to buy a mirror! But maybe just maybe I can make this work.

@lindag I got mine a few years ago at Walmart. Very inexpensive and light weight! I know you can make it work! Thank you, Linda!
posted May 12th, 2012  
This is amazingly beautiful. I love your reflection in it.

@sangwann You are too kind! Thank you very much, Dione!
posted May 12th, 2012  
I'm in if I can find a mirror larger than a compact not attached to a wall. And I love your entire series.
posted May 12th, 2012  
@cdonohoue Check Wally World, Cathy! They're light weight and very inexpensive. That's where mine came from! Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing your shots!
posted May 12th, 2012  
@marlboromaam Good call. I am also looking in tomorrow's paper for coupons to Michael's. Do you have them. They always have half price stuff. That cool frame came from WalMart? Wow. Looks antique to go with what you are doing.
posted May 12th, 2012  
@cdonohoue I got it a few years ago to hang in my small office before I was laid off. It was the mirror and the frame in one.
posted May 12th, 2012  
Another beautiful selfie. Have found a mirror, now to find somewhere to put in it. This is going to be fun!
posted May 12th, 2012  
Lovely shot. I found a mirror. Now, to figure out what to do with the mirror.
posted May 13th, 2012  
@wenbow Glad to know, Wendy! Have some fun with it! Thank you!

@daisy LOL! You'll figure it out, Kathryn! Thank you!
posted May 13th, 2012  
Very cool Maggie, mine have all been epic fails so far still trying though.
posted May 13th, 2012  
@copperheadglass You'll get it! Don't give up!
posted May 13th, 2012  
@marlboromaam You'll be pleased to know that I think I have got it sorted ;) lol.

Oh and what exactly do you mean by this: " I think we can all do it in a regular post. I don't think there's enough willing participants to warrant posting in discussions."?
posted May 13th, 2012  
Very cool idea and you are inspirational with all your mirror photos! I'll give it a go and see if I end up loading any of them!
posted May 13th, 2012  
Oh gosh and awesome photo by the way! Love the detail in your mirror frame.
posted May 13th, 2012  
@ozziehoffy Normally, a topic is created and the challenge or theme is posted in "Discussions." I just posted in in a normal post with the pic right here. Glad to know you've got it sorted out, too!

@rah2012 Just 3 shots! LOL! You'll get it and thank you for your kind comments!
posted May 13th, 2012

Well I have fallen behind on the site. I just saw this an already missed Sunday and havent purchased a mirror yet lol. My week may be too crazy to participate this time around. Do you have to have shots for everyday?
posted May 14th, 2012  
What a great idea!
posted May 14th, 2012  
@pammerritt Just 3 shots for the series, Pam, and you can shoot them on the same day if you want to. Just need to be taken between now and Saturday. You can do it!

@aleksandra Thank you, Aleksandra!

I'm so sorry that I didn't see this challenge. . .I enjoyed watching people's shots who are participating, though, so I'll have to keep an eye out for things like this for next time!
