Default Close ups thru glass using flash

Already posted this on another place in this forum but thought it might fit here to.


============================================

This weekend I went to a Butterfly Garden and they also had a nice collection of Reptiles.

Off course they where behind glass, so i tried getting some shots, knowing that reflections are the biggest problem.

I used my macro rig (two difussed flashes on an o bracket pressed against the glass to start with),
and my kiron105mm as close to the glass as possible.

Most shots where between 1:1.5 – 1:3 macro.

Then the small geckos started crawling over the glass, and to get these shots I couldn’t press the flash,
nor the lens to the glass so I just tried.

Surprisingly enough the reflections didn’t appear, having the flashes coming in at an angle that doesn’t reflect towards the lens gives enough light to remove the ambient reflections that you can see in the glass.

Up till now I never even tried to take a picture thru glass with a flash but I was wrong.
If you can get your flash at a good angle it gives great possibilities.

Cheers

Ronny
