Before I even read the title, I thought "This reminds me of M. C. Escher." Great photo!

This is one of the most creative mirror images I have seen. Beautiful lighting, symmetry, and a touch of mystery. Nicely done!

Behind The Lens

Location

This image was made at Washington University during a shoot I was doing for a Blog I write for Life Pixel Infrared.

Time

This image was an HDR made of three exposure taken at about 3:30 in the afternoon. It was a warm day, a Sunday and the University was empty, making it perfect for the type of images I was looking to capture.

Lighting

It was a very warm day and the light seemed to very definite, binary like, 0-1. It was either very bright and warm, or very dark and cool. I wanted to get the interesting effect of Infrared and the texture of the old structure, but knew that I would need multiple exposures to capture it the way I wanted.

Equipment

This was shot with a Canon 50D converted to Super Color Infrared (590nm) by Life Pixel Infrared. The lens was a Tamron SP AF 10-24mm f / 3.5-4.5 DI II, the tripod was by Dolica, with a Joby tripod head.

Inspiration

The finished image came to me as I was walking around the campus of Washington University. At one point I took a wrong turn and found myself lost. I thought I felt like I was in an Escher print. Once I got that image in my head, the location just seemed to melt into what I was envisioning. Later in post production it only took a minute to make what I had thought about all day.

Editing

Lots of post production. The 3 exposures were used to make an HDR Infrared image using Photoshop CS6, NIK HDR Efex Pro2, and NIK Color Efex Pro4. The original 3 exposures used to make the HDR can be seen here. http://www.danwampler.com/p503593615/h53d5874f#h53d5874f

In my camera bag

I leave home with a heavy bag. I usually carry two cameras, one Infrared, one color, an Ultra wide lens, and mid range zoom, and at least one prime lens, like a 40mm or 50mm

Feedback

If you are going to shoot Infrared, have your camera converted by Life Pixel. If you are going to shoot HDR, 1. use a tripod 2. Don't over do it. If you are going to try a conceptional image like this one, have a clear idea of what you want while you are shooting. That makes for an easier time in post production.
