Tie in the Mirror – 10/31/10, 10:09 am; f-4.5; 1/8; Canon Rebel XSi on tripod.
For this one, I positioned the camera at an angle from the mirror. I put it on a timer, then stood at the opposite angle from the mirror and looked at the camera, to get a view that looked from straight on.

Commando – 10/27/10, 4:44 pm; f-10; 0.6; Canon Rebel XSi on tripod.
Just have to mention… Commando is one of my favorites. Ridiculous 80’s movie with cheesy acting and dialogue.

I slightly modified the layout of Sister Esplins original template to adjust the the kinds of pictures I took (I had more landscapes). Because of that, I had to move the text and some other photo boxes around to fit just right.
To get the pictures in the “frames”, I used a clipping mask. Basically, you have your template, and each “frame” has its own layer. When I put the picture I want to use on top of the desired layer, I ctrl+click between the two layers, and it creates a clipping mask. This lets me move around the picture, while keeping it inside the frame. This also makes it easier for future uses, if wanted, so I don’t have to make the template over and over. All I would have to do, is grab another picture, put it on top and ctrl+click between them.
