Hi all, firstly, apologies for no interaction or votes for a while I've been on holiday. Secondly, i need your help please. I respect everyone on this site and value your opinions greatly, so i need your advice on this upload, i don't expect you to vote, but please tell me how i could of got the perfect shot here, with NO reflection in the glass? you can see my camera bottom right, and i wanted to know do i use a polariser? no polariser? what do i do to get this shot perfect through glass? as i loved the subject and pov so much, thanks in advance to all :)
I suspect Digicam will be able to help you on this. It's still a great shot & in a way your camera becomes part of it.....
Good question. Its extremely difficult to avoid reflections, even with a polarizer, the best way is remove in photoshop.
Hmm, I have a photo of a chameleon through glass and you cannot see the reflection at all. I think it's a matter of focusing the lens. I noticed that if the glass is dirty
...or has cracks the camera can focus on that rather than the subject
Yes, Polarize Filter. But not just any Polarize Filter. Use a High Grade Circular Polarize Filter.
As you rotate the Filter you will see the reflections disappear, or at least most. Stop the rotation and shoot. I use them on Aquariums and they rid the r
I will have to try that myself Ed, does it work just as well with strong light like in the image, if so I may buy one.
Love your subject and interesting read I find useful.
As Ed says, there is a vast difference in quality of circular polarizers. Crappy and really good. The really crappy ones are like $20, the really good ones run around $160 to $200. Worth it.
The perfect solution ...... is to turn off all lights on this side of the glass! If that can not, the council Ed seems to me the wiser. Also the subject is interesting.
Well Ron, Ricardo is correct about the lighting. The less light the less the reflections. But even in strong lighting a good Circular Polarize Filter will cut much of it out. I use a Hoya Pro 1 Circular Polarize Filter (72MM). I bought mine on Ebay for ar
Cont: I bought mine on Ebay for around $100. Photoshops, $150 and Up. There are several good brands out there. Just be sure it's a Circular Polarize Filter. Hoya now has a NEW HD Polarize Filter out. May want to look into that one.
As Digicam said, A good polarizer has a rotating lens. you rotate the outer lens until it blocks the reflected image. They are really reasonable I bought one on EBAY for $30
