Is there a test you can do to determine how proportional/realistic/accurate a mirror is? I have different proportions and skull sizes in every mirror I look into.

The mirror is perfectly accurate, the lighting is changing and that's why you are seeing different things in different mirrors.

You will look different when you make a video. A mirror is not accurate. If you have a stuff animal from your childhood days put in front of a mirror you will notice it looks different and so do you.

How does lighting literally make my proportions bigger? My head looks wider/taller depending on the mirror.

not true. A small warp in a mirror can produce a significant distortion. Generally thicker mirrors produce a more accurate image. I have one mirror that the warp is clearly visible in the center, and I look 15 lbs lighter in the center of the mirror than I do on the edge.

This. It's why you something in a mirror and something else in another mirror.

Brain recounts the impact of colour.

Colour wavelenght hits an object:

Part of colour is absorbed by the object = you don´t see that
Part of colour bounces off = you don´t see it
Part of colour is reflected into your eye = what you se


The gray bar across the center is actually one constant colour



The surface colours of A and B are the same. To test it out, just use your finger to cover the middle of the drawing, where the two squares meet.




Contrasting colours can even give you the illusion of motion.



If you stare at the center of this illusion you will eventually see a revolving green circle. When the lilac disappears, the adaptation of rods and cones in the retina leaves a green afterimage.



You brain is cucking you in every mirror and picture, you´ll never see yourself the way others see you.

Try combination of mettalic and dielectic mirrors or you´ll be stranger to yourself forever.

They apply in general mirror/camera, however not to a point of creating unrecognizable abstraction.
Though myspaceangles and lighting frauds beg to differ.

Familarize yourself with the way advanced phones use picture taking technology, where in fact, they attempt to mimic the way our brain enhances the original light input.

The camera takes 10 pictures in fact, morphs them and fakes them by computer algorigthm, and it comes out as your average iPhone selfie within fraction of second. You can think of it as sort of literal interpretation of Allegory of the Cave with shadows casted on the wall where the "slaves" only see the final reflection of the entire process.

Most exciting part of the alghorithm is "multi-aperture photography" technology.

It´s inherently virtual and incapable to catch slight nuances only human eye/brain can process.
Therefore you´ll never see yourself the way others see you no matter what you do.

Poor O´Pry, poor prime Lachowski and blessed are those who met them IRL :lol:
