Tuesday’s Tip for better photos #4


Tuesday’s Tip #4:

This is a quick tip for any of you who have ever wondered how to shoot through a glass window. Press your lens up against the glass. What this accomplishes is an elimination of reflective glare from things like your clothes. If the lens is not allowing any other light in between it and the glass, it won’t see those nasty glares. This works for SLR cameras and point and shoots, just remember that you have to be careful if your lens moves while zooming or focusing! Sometimes you may want to shoot through a window of a bumpy car or vibrating plane, so this trick won’t work as well. In these cases, it’s best to wear something dark and cover up any other light, reflective surfaces so that there is less glare in the reflection. Check out this cool shot from inside Seattle’s Columbia tower.

Another thing you may want to consider, is leaving the reflections in on purpose. This will be a creative decision on your part. 🙂 Happy shooting!
