This is an automated shot rig I'm working on. It's based on an intelligent 7-year-old bipod:

Nice to see he's getting into sports at such an early age...

First try at a mirror shot, made a couple of mistakes that I'll fix next time(Mainly the shooting angle and not lighting the side.)

Breakfast stand with black poster from the 99 cent store,
Random mirror I found on the road once(taped the edge in electrical tape)
(not pictured) 42" reflector used to block the window light(I really need to get blinds)
Lit with 99 cent harbor freight LED light(on dying batteries)

4S at F8,ISO 100, 51mm on a canon crop body.

How do you get rid of that second reflection? I tried this once and never liked the result. I was even getting a third reflection in some setups.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

The viewing angle has a lot to do with how exaggerated the second reflection will be. Personally, I either set an angle that minimizes it or Ps out what I can.

Yeah it's all in the angle, I was trying to do it so I would get perfect straight lines but since the mirror is so big it was hard to work with.
Lesson learned, cut the mirror :D

I wanted to use my macro lens also, but at 28mm it wasn't long enough.

I was going for low key on purpose :confused:

I can light up a product just fine.

Thanks for the link nonetheless, when I need to eliminate all the shadows that's what I'll do. Love DIY ! :D

I've read somewhere on here before that a mirror isn't the best because you get a reflection from the top and bottom of the glass, hence the ghosting. Solution is to use a hard shiny surface like white/black perspex or similar product, it can only reflect off the top surface so only one reflection. Hope that helps.

Nice result. For some added fun you should swap out different colored gels over the lens while the light swings. (see my avatar) ;)
