Removing the camera from a mirror scene
I have been noticing recently the technique of shooting a scene with some actors in front of a mirror and the camera also being clearly in front of the mirror, however it's not reflected in the mirror. I'm thinking of films such as The World's End, Benjamin Button and most recently Birdman. So I was wondering how is this effect done? Digitally masking the camera out or what? Thanks!
