I remember practicing on some mirror self portraits with manual settings for another theme back in 2011 ...but I did not use this one earlier... I think I like it better now than I did then after I converted it into sepia. The reason why I may not have used it before is because the 10 sec self timer went off just as I was reaching for something on the dresser but it is actually more natural as I wasn't posing for the camera and the reflection shows up clearly in the mirror.

Camera : Nikon D40x
F-stop f/8
Exposure time: 1/20 sec.
Exposure bias: +07 step
ISO Speed 800
Focal length 23 mm
(Comparable to 35mm focal length 34)

Exposure program: Manual
No flash

    Thank you for your comments...this is a blast of the past but I am finding that some of these pictures that I worked on hold fond memories of my time spent here on the JPG site and a learning experience for how to utilize the settings of my camera for portrait lamp lighting to get a clear reflection. Hopefully it will work for the challenge as a" human" nature reflection..
