Flash and Glass

If you find yourself in a situation where you want to use your flash to shoot through a window or display case, try placing your lens right against the glass so that the reflection of the flash won’t be visible in your image (Figure 8.20 and Figure 8.21). This is extremely useful in museums and aquariums.

Figure 8.20

Figure 8.20 The bright spot at the top of the frame is a result of the flash reflecting off the display case.

ISO 400 • 1/25 sec. • f/3.5 • 24mm lens

Figure 8.21

Figure 8.21 To eliminate the reflection, place the lens against the glass or as close to it as possible. This might also require zooming the lens out a little.

ISO 400 • 1/25 sec. • f/3.5 • 18mm lens
