A few months back, there was a competition on ClubAlpha.net, Sony’s official Alpha forum. Take a picture of yourself with the A100, it said.
I shot this with my Sony A100 with Sony 18-70mm F3.5-5.6 DT at 70mm F36 (to get as much of both of us in focus.) Of course, this was not valid because the camera itself was not in the picture. (That’s my Minolta Dynax 7 used as a frame.)
40mm F36. This time, the Dynax 7’s back was opened and it was set to a 10 second exposure (to give me enough time to get into the reflected frame.) The apparent mirror in the frame is a real mirror held to the back of the camera!
Needless to say, I didn’t win anything because I wasn’t (apparent) in the shot, or the camera wasn’t in the shot.
