Hiding the camera in the Bathroom Mirror1334

Just curious if a few of you (that I consider) experts would comment on whether your best practice is to try and hide the camera when shooting a bathroom or just go for the selfie. Thank you, Lisa

You can lower your tripod lower than the mirror.

If you lower the camera does it still line up with the other scans?

Keep one large and one small fake plants and a basket in your car.
place this in between the mirror and the instrument if it won't look out of place this way you won't have to lower the instrument as much.
A stack of towels works too

These are great ideas, thanks for sharing. As a real estate agent I try to have everything perfect for display of the property but I'd rather have a good scan than worry about seeing the camera in the mirror so my advice is don't make yourself crazy. Maybe some of those people that see the camera in the mirror will say 'what is that, I'd better talk to her about selling my house!'

I've lowered the camera but wasn't so crazy about the way it looked (it aligned for me); used fake plants; used a painting once. LOVE the idea of a stack of towels!

Thanks again everybody!

Hello! Last time I went not in a straight line. The mirror in the bathroom was not widespread. But it was opposite the entrance to the bathroom. So I went to the bathroom is not in front of a mirror, and a little diagonally. I came out of the bath, I also diagonally. True the camera once I put the camera in front of a mirror. Then a sort of inactivated way the camera is not reflected in the mirror. Take a look at the screenshot. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=iRnDkL5GqDc

@Max_Sodomovskiy also an interesting effect with the LED lights in the ceiling of the Kitchen and Living room, when viewed via dollshouse and floorplan. Great idea for the bathroom mirror.

Hi! The 2nd way to hide the camera is to put something between the mirror and camera. Use all three ways to pass the mirror!

I don't see a big issue with the reflection in the mirror. Buyers want to see the space, they know a camera has to be used, They don't care if they can see it? Its not a career ending magic trick that we are trying to conceal.

That was the upshot of my question - is there a best practice on whether or not to hide the mirror. I agree.

I don't move items or add items to the decor of any room without consulting the agent. Most are particular and want the house to look a certain way and seem more concerned with that than they are seeing a camera.
