“Self-Portrait” – From the bathroom balcony of the Presidential Suite @ShangriLaTO, Toronto

Let me explain how this is a self-portrait.

On a recent photoshoot in the Presidential Suite of the Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto, we needed to setup a silk and a light outside the master bathroom on the adjoining balcony.
I volunteered to keep an eye on the equipment as it was somewhat windy outside being 20 stories up.

While the photographer was shooting I noticed that the glass building across the street provided a perfect mirror image of my vantage point. Positioning myself in the middle of the silk’s reflection, I timed my exposure so as to catch the strobe head firing and illuminating the white fabric.
The result is a bright white square that punctuates the reflection and almost fully envelopes my outline in glowing white light.
