Day 293 of 365 – Shower Time

I was presented with the suggestion of taking a photo of myself in the shower, from the shower head’s perspective. This seemed simple enough, until I tried to execute it.

I did not factor in the steam from the warm shower, which fogged up my lens immediately. The lighting was also crap in my small bathroom. I then set up my flash remotely in the sink, pointing through the shower curtain. Using the shower curtains as a flash diffuser basically turned my shower into a big light box.

I tried toning down the temperature of the water a little bit, but it still fogged up the lens. There was no way I was taking a cold shower for this, so I opted to wipe the lens and take the shot almost immediately  I also shot this with a little more flash than usual, as I think the steam actually looks good in a high key style.
