We have a mirrored door in the center of town that I stop at every now and then and do a selfie...in Ogden, Utah. Over the years I've noticed that this mirror makes my beard look grayer, but I'm sure that's an illusion.
taken with Olympus XA.
Shhh, yes it's flipped in PS (or maybe the neg was scanned backwards, I don't remember).

the only things that can't be flopped and printed are tintypes + ferrotypes
but ambrotypes, dry plates, film, paper negatives and all their 19th + 20th century cousins can

Having little interest in my own image, here's the closest I can come to a self portret. I set the camera up and a hotel maid tripped the remote release. I'm the short guy on the right, next to my wife, then her sister and sister's husband. In Paso Robles, CA in early 2010. Zeiss 521/16, probably with Delta 100.

Agreed. Didn't mean to start a thread drift. Just curious to know Bethe's response to my question.

PS -- the image is "flipped", or reversed or whatever in the printing process (single transfer carbon).
PS#2 -- and my avatar is taken with a pinhole camera about 8" from my face (using litho film in a 250 sheet box of photo paper), and then printed as a cyanotype.

At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
I made today a Polaroid transfer. I used new film from the Impossible Project with a Polaroid 636 camera.
The Impossible film is very suitable for an image lift. Here are two simple shots from my iphone during the process. I'll scan the image later when fully dried.
1) the film layer floating in hot water (in yellow tray):
2) the final image transferred to aquarel paper (still wet):
(I'm holding a Leica R7 with 50 Summicron lens, loaded with Fuji NPH400)
