Mirror images of yourself can be done without an alt, and without a fancy prop with all the objects mirrored. First you take a picture of yourself from "within" the mirror. Imagine the mirror is actually a window, and then take a picture through that window. Then crop that picture to the exact size of the mirror, reverse it, upload the picture as a texture, add it to the surface of the mirror. Then take another picture of you, standing in front of your "reflection"

I am going to try this!

To avoid the 10L$ upload fee -  with Firestorm (don't know in other viewers) you do not have to upload the picture to SL, you can use the "Local" function when you select textures and add files from your local drive - works fine for a temporary texture that only needs to be there for a photo.

Saves me a lot of Lindens and/or logins to the betagrid when i'm playing around with textures - works fine as long as only you need to see the texture, others around you will of course not see the local texture...

So, after some interesting SL photography pointers were given to me, I had a "I'm dumb..." moment and realized that I never toggle the shadows option to 'on' in my preferences when I take pictures. n.n; So, here's a few of my first study shots with shadows after making a quick set up with the advise given to me. :3

I knew everything I needed to know to figure this out, but somehow hadn't. Thanks for pointing this out.

Hah! Thanks Kira, but not an "idea" at all: what I describe as happening had just happened when I took this pic. And that is where it happened! The only changes I made for the pic were to swap hair, add the facial expression, and lift my avi a bit higher out of the water. (Post-processing, I cropped and desaturated a bit.)

The annoyed expression is genuine insofar as it matched my RL one. There's nothing quite so simultaneously hilarious and aggravating as watching the blue square representing your vehicle on the minimap shoot off into the distance without you.

Now the only addition the pic needs is a submerged Maddy stalking me from below, to the theme of Jaws.

If you recreate your Flickr account, Go to your Account Settings, Privacy & Permissions.  There you can set it so that only Flickr members can comment on pictures - and then block anyone negative.
