Panos with mirrors

I stumbled across a 360 virtual tour of a bathroom with a mirror in it, I'm curious as to how one would shoot a photo of a mirror and remove the reflection of the camera and tripod, any ideas?

This is done by shooting the same panorama twice with the tripod moved a couple of feet to the side. Both panoramas are stitched and then bought into Photoshop as layers and the tripod in the mirror is erased. The layers flattened and the panorama published.


Using a self timer or remote shutter release helps keeping you out of the shot.

Thank you, 

 

Any recommendations on which version of Photoshop to buy? I was on Adobes website and there are a lot ofoptions. I don't need anything fancy or overly sophisticated, just an easy to use program that will do 

the job.

At a minimum you will require Photoshop Elements.

The program you purchase must support layers.
