    No, just plain old photoshop. How would I keep the camera out of the mirror with a shift lens? Mar 2 at 11:41
  • 1
    by setting the camera just to the side of the mirror, aimed perpendicular to the (extended) plane of the mirror, and applying lateral shift towards the mirror. See: "The Vampire Effect" section of this link.

Reflections of a hammerhead flash

Before a wardrobe mirror, Reflections of a Hammerhead Flash, 2020-Nov-09 Reflections of a hammerhead flash

I have no idea where half of those reflections are from and why they are partially colored: there was just a single mirror involved in front of the camera. All other reflection surfaces have to be lens and teleconverter (or other camera parts) in some manner.
