I put some burning candles on a cement floor, and I could see their reflections; so could my f1.8 50mm G lens.
Because of the dull background wall, and the floor and the wall together making a visible horizon, I am thinking of putting a chart paper beneath the candles and up the wall behind to make an 'infinity curve'.
Now, the problem is that the paper will prevent the reflections from occuring, and I don't have glass or other substance than paper.
To counter the problem I was thinking of spreading some water on the paper and then placing the candles on that. Another option would be to place transparent polythene on the paper. Would this work? Or does anyone have a better suggestion?
How about glazed paper and laminated paper? Which will be better?
