Thread: Filming your reflection in a mirror

    Smile Filming your reflection in a mirror

    Hi Guys

    Just a quick query about shooting footage into a mirror (ie) filming your own reflection.

    I find when I point my video camera at a mirror to film my refection it quite often goes out of focus????

    And before anyone says it I am not that ugly

    Anyway if you are shooting into a mirror do you need a special lens adaptor or something ?????
    Or should you be able to shoot as if you are shooting anything else......as per normal ?

    In fairness my camcorder was set to automatic focus so that might be the problem (ie) stick to manual focus ????

    Regardless I am very interested to know other peoples experience about filming reflections in a mirror.

    Any feedback/advice etc etc etc is much appreciated

    Manual focus every time

    Agree, keep it on manual focus and it can't change. just make sure it's in focus first.

    And make sure the mirror is clean! Sounds silly, but you'll notice just how dirty it is when you play back the footage.
