Taking a picture of a reflected image of object is depicted in this image. Camera focus is on the image of a piece of paper.
Besides the depth of field (cheap Panasonic DMC-FX8 in makro mode, compact camera) I'm content with the picture.
Defects on the mirror
- The mirror has imperfections like small areas with missing golden mirror film.
- Defects near the rim of the mirror are hard to focus on. Autofocus focuses on the piece of paper instead the mirror surface. I understand that. Possibly manual focus should do the job. Maybe there is a trick to work around?
Is it possible to take the photo using the Panasonic DMC-FX8? If yes, how to focus on the defect area on the mirror?
