Photography ~ Still Life-Lilac Vase, 01/28

I’ve met the mirror reflection challenge.

Mirrors show EVERYTHING until you in some way cover up or mask what you do not want to capture in the shoot. Generally, I’m trying not include lights or other objects that can be distracting. Yesterday, I masked items on my west wall by hanging a black bedspread in front of them. That left the ceiling light exposed and maybe items on my south wall, relative to mirror and camera angle. Today I moved the cover eastward and now have somewhat of a “shooting gallery.”

Black in front of a mirror allows it to reflect only what one wants to be seen.
