I would like to discuss photographing through or towards reflective surfaces. Several times I have been asked to go over photos where people think they might have captured something but it is just a person or object that is in the room reflecting off the glass. This morning i snapped a couple of examples and posted below.
Another thing that you see a lot of is photos taken outside a house with tree leaves or branches reflecting off the windows being matrixed by the brain to look like a person or a face. Unfortunately i live in the desert and could not get any good examples of this.
One other example I couldn’t quite capture is photos taken from reflective surfaces or materials with a flash. This will often cause the light to refract off the reflective surface back onto the lens causing lens flare.
If you are interested try experimenting by taking photos of reflective surfaces with and without a flash and post them on our Facebook page.
That’s about all I can think to say. Let me know if I need to include anything? Thank you.
