Creativity is about layering structures into one final piece of artwork.
To offer more depth to the images, you could start pointing the lenses at glasses, windows, windshield etc.
All these elements are readily available around us. Just be more alert of interesting subjects beyond the transparency.
There are a few pointers that we need to put in mind when shooting through the glass, mainly:
1. Clean Glass
2. Check Reflection
3. Focus Manually
4. No Flash
Now let’s take a look at the following sample pics:
The school of fish can be seen clearly going after their food here. Framing is helped by the blurring effect from the glass on both lower left and right side.
Food items on display can be appealing. A wide aperture was used for this picture, to blur off the rather thick glass and give some depth.
This shot was done at night, thus easily avoided the reflection of photographer himself. Note that the direction of the red taxi is the same as the Air Jordan sign, which is to the right of the frame. This is to achieve the same visual flow.
Same words here, Happy Playing!
