This is pretty much all I see in the morning when I wake....but it gets me going.

** This was shot with my D80 on a tripod sink left, extended to 7ft balanced against the sink (very shaky), with my SB600 flash hanging directly above (facing straight down) hooked onto the mirror using the SB600 mini stand that comes with it.

I had the remote in my mouth to trigger the shutter, and a chair behind me to stand on and "check" the shot afterward to avoid moving the camera.

It was a bit of a nightmare getting the camera lens/position JUST RIGHT, but well worth it.

Then, I added my "Secret Editing Sauce" when I was satisfied with the initial capture.
