Yeah! When scenes have a character looking in a mirror/reflective surface, I used to get really confused about how they filmed it, but they probably used this method, or at least one very similar, I wouldn't be surprised!
Really nice to have helpful folks like you contributing reference pose and photos, I am keeping searching for some body actions or expression for inspiration in artwork design and the conceptual process...
Wow. I feel dumb. I thought there was some super strong person laying on their back with their feet up, with you standing on their feet. You know, until I saw the ones that showed the whole reflection.
and im surprised many people didnt know this... i was taught about light reflections/refractions whatever its called.. in year 8 science... for the few who dont understand the picture... light will bounce off a mirror at the exact same angle it hit the mirror... - me being a snobby know-it-all there
It's one of those crazy industrial mirrors that people put in their bathrooms on the wall. It's very thick and quite heavy. It was dropped during construction and the end cracked off. Since it was so expensive, the owners were really happy to get it to a new home to be used rather than throw it away LUCKY
it does seem simple. the pic i commented on only still confused me (even though i read the comments string and saw how you did it) I think its because it still looks like you're using the camera directly above you (because of how your feet are present underneath) if that makes any sense
