Double Vision

By on June 28, 2014.

A few weeks ago I was taking pictures in the mirror for Hyacinth Jones #Boobday meme. The theme was mirrors, one of my favourite tools when it comes to self-portrait pictures and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to play along. So there I was with boobs out, camera round my neck, trying to get the outline of my boobs against the red of the blanket on our bed when I noticed the way the beveled edge of the mirror was creating a double image. My original plan for the image was immediately discarded in favour of this new-found interest. Yes I am a bit like a magpie when it comes to my images,

“oh look, something shiny & new let’s do THAT instead”.

However as a general rule I have found this ‘magpie’ trait to actually work really well when it comes to photography. It caught your eye for a reason, because it was interesting , different, exciting etc and my advice is, when that happens, go with it. Cast aside you original plan, you can always come back to it another day and try to capture that distraction instead. It often works out really well….

  1. I totally agree–I think it’s best to go with what catches your eye in the moment rather than try to stick to a rigid plan. I LOVE the surreal feel of the effect in your shot!

  2. When I first glimpsed this image, my first thought was ‘Oh, my goodness! Molly has the most perfectly symmetrical boobs ever!” 🙂 I love how this picture really makes you look, that the use of the mirror isn’t immediately obvious. The focus on the nipple, too, is wonderful. Outstanding shot of a very lovely pair of breasts. Jane xxx
