Of the distance from the focal place to the mirror glasses added to the distance from the mirror glass to the subject.
You are shooting with a wide angle lens from head to toe reflection of the talent in a full-length mirror hanging in the center of a wall.

- The heigh/angle of the camera
- The ISO, shutter angle, speed/fps
- The direction/color/intensity of the lighting and how it would affect the foreground subject
- The amount of contrast
- The ambient temperature and other weather conditions

What does a swing/tilt (or shift/tilt) lens accomplish?
- Changes the orientation and/or position of the lens with respect to the image sensor/plane of focus
- Changes the perspective so only a portion of the frame will be in focus
- Parallel lines that appear to converge due to perspective distortion can be realigned to appear parallel
