Taking Photographs through Glass

This is a video frpm 2014.

As photographers, we have all tried it at some stage or the other… to shoot an image while being behind a sheet of glass. The greatest challenge when dealing with something like this is suppressing the reflections from the sheet of glass.

This problem is particularly bad when shooting night scenes. Attempting to resolve these issues in post-processing is time-consuming and does not always work.

I’ve finally come across a means to be able to suppress reflections while shooting through glass, no matter what the conditions… and it is all thanks to a very simple but ingenious idea!

Enter the LenSkirt – a canvas tent with suction cups that you can attach to the sheet of glass through which you are about to shoot through.
