DP2 in the mirror..

Crop from first shot. not 100%.

I found this cool mirror when passing a beauty shop. Btw, all these shops are located in something that looks very similar to a garage – both by design and size. And it’s not uncommon that the owner sleeps in the back or above. So, when the shop opens the whole door is pulled away and it’s like one wall is gone, no door no nothing. Like opening a garage. That also brings the possibility to fast find mirrors and stuff that you can shoot at like this one directly from the bright, sunlit street.
And yes. I had to take this shot like four times to get the correct exposure. It’s really a tricky situation. It’s also tilted slightly but I wanted you to have the full size original without any corrections made.

Or like this one, it’s not easy to hide when there is no wall.. (would have been great if I looked at shutter speed before pressing that trigger. Hoping for Sigma to add full auto ISO too.. :) Would really help me in situations like this one. I do use auto ISO, but would use it MUCH more if it gave me a better reach.
I remember that I shot a kid with some cool t-shirt some time ago, someone thought it was cool and I found another one  – if anyone seen the movie, then you know what the text refers to. :D Often when I see one it’s either on a person that I feel bad shooting or inside some dark shop OR no camera at reach.

Sometimes the owner has this problem of what to do, cut hair or sell toys?

Sigma DP2. Developed using Lightroom 3. I know, shots would most likely be nicer if at least first processed using SPP but I developed lots of shots and I really don’t have much time for SPP..
Extra: And just came home from the fire festival which I wanted to visit last year but couldn’t and now, finally I had a go.. so crazy. I did bring cameras too, but it was pitch black except for the fire – will post some images. But it’s sleep time now.

    I just love your work. This has really inspired me to buy and give the Sigma DP2 a try. I am also loving the performance of the foveon X3 (purely based on the photos I see online) It is just remarkably and pleasanlty different. Love your photos as well! hurray for sigma!
