Photog takes ‘impossible’ self-portrait in mirror

London - A photographer has finally cracked the mystery on how to take a self-portrait in front of a mirror without the camera appearing at all.

The “trick” is that the photo isn’t in fact one photo at all, it’s a compilation of several, with the camera “snipped out” of the final version.

“What you’ll need is a camera, a big mirror and a basic knowledge of Photoshop,” the Daily Mail quoted the blog tutorial entitled Photoshop Subtle Mirror Trick Tutorial as saying.

“The theory behind this image is that you’re combining three photos into one. One of each of your hands and a third of your head,” it said.

The user needs to start off by taking a picture of your right arm, then your left arm. You will need to erase the part of the layers showing the left and right arms holding the camera to your face.

Another photo is then added, which hasn’t got the individual’s face blocked by the camera, then move that “layer” up over the top of the final image.

“If you’ve been really careful when taking the photos, then this should be fairly easy to complete. If not, then it’s time to get some photoshop trickery out.

“A little bit of clone tool here and there, and pinch of content-aware fill later, I’m able to make mine come out perfect. A slight crop to remover the overlapping, and I’m done,” Expert Photography blog added.
