Have you ever noticed that almost every single good movie out there has a “mirror reflection” scene in it?
It’s a shot where you can see the main character in the room and an interesting reflection of that same character in a nearby mirror at the same time.
I heard a movie director commenting on this one time on the director’s cuts of a DVD and how effective it is as a movie effect.
I figured if they can do it in the movies, then why not try it in real life?

This was my little compact mirror that she pulled out of my purse last Christmas.
