  1. I like very much the fact of seeing how you take your pictures. It is like being just behing you, like a curious tiny tiny mouse on your shoulder.
    It seems that besides having this large white screen and the two mirros, you still have pretty good exposition with light right ?

  2. Ha! This is very smart but I can’t help but feel bad for the tomato, oddly. This reminds me a little of Hellraiser… I love those little pin cushions though. My cat loves batting it around even more.

  3. Cool picture and even cooler concept! Because I am not a photographer, the complexity of that shot are somewhat lost on me. But not the creativity and cleverness of the concept. :)

    1. Hooray, I’m so glad you’re taking my suggestion, I just know you’ll love it! I only just started using mine a few months ago as per the requirements of a particular class I’m taking, and now I find myself pull it out almost every time I shoot anything!

      1. Good. Even though I am a photographer by trade, I use only natural light when photographing people, no special props, but at home I had some white foam board, so I used it, but it is not nearly big enough, so I caved in when I saw the price. I will be using it for photographing food too ;).
