Portraits With a Giant Mirror Down in a Pit Mine

By January 22, 2016News

Photographers have done some creative things with mirrors, but photographer Stefan Schlumpf has just raised the bar with his series of portraits using a giant mirror!

For his “Silent Dialog II” project, Schlumpf set up the giant mirror in outdoor locations – including a giant pit mine – and used it to create a stunning backdrop to frame his models.

The giant mine dwarfed the photo shoot:

Schlumpf and his team set up lights and shot with a Phase One XF camera and 60mp XF IQ3 digital back.

The nature behind Schlumpf and his team was reflected in the mirror behind his subjects:

But giant pit mines aren’t the only places that this creative mirror portrait can work:
