Hello Everyone! This is my first swap as an officer in the Sharp Shooters Group and I have more up my proverbial sleeve!

For this swap, you will stand in front of a mirror, window, framed picture, or any "reflecting" material and take a picture of yourself. Do more than "snap" the picture. Compose it; craft it--Photoshop it, if you choose. After you've crafted your photo, print on quality photo paper or have it printed at a lab, adhere to card stock and send stamped and written on (naked) to your partner as a postcard. Size requirement: minimum 4x6, maximum 5x7.

This is a Type 3 swap because like any other art form, photography often requires planning and CRAFTING.

Note: If you "reflect" off another photo or piece of artwork, give credit to the photographer or artist in your note.

Swap Requirements (as per group rules): "In an effort to maintain an amicable swapping environment, all members are required to meet the following standards: have completed a minimum of 5 swaps, uphold an overall rating of 4.95 or higher, have no 1 or 3 ratings in the past 3 months, and possess the ability to log in at least bi-weekly."

Happy Shooting!

Hi Hun So you take a photo of reflection you see in the mirror am I corroect and what do you mean play with it.

Sorry to seem dumb but always pays to be sure.

Not a dumb question at all! Yes, you can take a picture of your reflection in a mirror or the reflection from a shop window, etc. By play with it--I mean, do more than just stand and snap a photo. Position yourself in an interesting way.

Also, just to clarify. The subject (you) doesn't have to be crystal clear. With the exception of the mirror, in many cases you will appear as a silhouette.
