@billdebley replied: Thanks Pam, It really works, and even with a $1000.00 macro on a DSLR you can't get flowers that are less than a foot off the ground!

Experimenting doing ‘macro’ by shooting the reflections in a 5X magnifying make-up mirror! It has several advantages. You get 5X optical magnification (that’s equivalent to a 250 mm lens), added fill light from the ring light on the makeup mirror, shallow depth of field, and a controlled soft background. You can select a background by angling the mirror.These shots were captured using a Canon S110 Powershot S110 Point ‘n Shoot. The beauty of shooting the reflection in the mirror rather than the actual subject is that you can shoot at f8 or smaller because the short DOF is “built-in” by the 5X mirror. A very easy and inexpensive way to get those normally difficult macro shots. It works especially well for those wild flowers that are less than a foot off the ground or that bloom that is in a plant that you cannot get under.
