    I get the same problem when I try to take pictures of my car, or others cars. Because they are well looked after and are clean I always manage to catch myself in the reflection, is there a simple way to stop this from happening ?

    Look into polarizing filters.

    1. Think about that fact when you're composing the shot, then position your reflection so that it's acceptable to you, like as a thin sliver in a very curvy part of the composition as a whole.

    2. Use a longer lens.

    3. Camoflage yourself by shooting from a position behind something else, like another car, tree, bush, etc. Flocking may work in some circumstances.

    Shop that ****!

    Or use a smaller camera and shoot from a balled up fetal position behind a shroud painted to look like the background behind you.
