Shooting images through windows from inside your home

Numerous Male and Female Cardinals at the Feeder

Image above is an example I posted during this past winter

There was a time, long ago, when shooting images through a window was considered taboo…not today.  In my case, being holed-up inside throughout the winter leaves me no choice but to shoot from inside out.  I enjoy it and feel like I’ve come along with plenty of practice.  The art, itself, isn’t that difficult.  I’ve found there are only a couple of steps.

1.  Make sure the glass is clean.

2.  Find an angle where there is no glare.

3.  For the most part, turn off the flash.

4.  Compose your image…follow the rule of thirds where it’s possible to get the image you’re looking for…and shoot.

There you go.  You’ll enjoy it and find a new way to shoot…if you haven’t already.
