Mirror Mirror on the Wall

A photographer's conundrum. How to photograph white on black? In this case, how to show the effect of mirrors on a shiny black background which is positioned on a black background.

At the best of times, a small digital camera doesn't pick up shine or sparkle. Fifty little mirrors confuse the optics entirely.
And then there's the problem caused by reflection, as seen in these two photos. Awkward.
