Im stoaked on my image with my own reflection in a mates eye. This was shot on a 7D with e EF-S 60mm f/2.8. Shot at like maybe f/3.5, SS 1/200th and iso 100 if I remember correctly

What Id like to see is other photographers creativity and how they got the shot. Maybe their reflection in a drop of water, dew, earrings... im not too sure what can be done and hasn't been tried before but interesting to find out. Making it more difficult you could try capturing another image within like a biker going over a jump caught in action instead of yourself??

I've never used a macro lens and was the first time using one and keen to see what else people show me. happy to answer questions if problems.

Push boundaries.
cheers stefan

Fantastic image Stefan!

Was it a challenge to get the image and reflection sharp? Did you take one photo or lots of pictures to get this one?

Cheers!

haha id like to say I got it instantly but no took quite a few images then found using AI Servo worked best as this was all handheld. So the slightest movement at that aperture/distance would miss the DOP in focus I was after

cheers stefan

Perfect. I was not expecting this image when I opened the topic -- a pleasant surprise, indeed.

I like your "I'm concentrating" and/or "this is frustrating" face :wink:

Excellent result!

I like how your camera seems to be the pupil in his eye. Looks awesome!

I was taking a shot of my friend's eye in the pub a few months ago and spotted that I was reflected in her pupil. I decided to try and get a self portrait and I also found it challenging to get proper focus - AF wasn't really working as it was too dark so I ended up going manual.

I'm pleased with the result after a little creative PP :)

And here's another one I got while taking some snaps of my friend's watch. The watch was in its box and this was taken outside. I was on a tripod this time so the focus wasn't quite so difficult.

Good work! love to see what other people come up with.

came across this shot that related to this post. amazingly was shot on a powershot s1 is, my first camera!

This crazy self-portrait was taken using the tiny reflection in the tip of a ballpoint pen. Russian photographer Alexey Arkhipov modified a Canon PowerShot S1 IS, adding a custom (and cheap) lens setup to achieve this super-macro shot. Head on over to his blog post if you’d like to learn how it was done and how to do this yourself (you might have to use Google Translate).
