In my studio, I have a make-up mirror close to the shooting area with lamps like in a circus wardrobe. Some month ago I planned a personnel project with a great model with a wonderfull expression. We knew each other quite well since we did hilarious work together before.

While I was setting up the light, Rike finished her make-up (she did perfectley on her own). When I glanced at her, I knew I wanted to shoot some frames with this terrible available light around the mirror. After a little bit of color correction, the results were great and we had a lot of fun before the "real" project.

Since then I continue the mirror-project and ask every model before a shoot to pose in front of the mirror without direction in the way she sees herself. Maybe I will show the results sometime in a book or exhibition.
