CM Monthly Challenge- Shooting Through Glass
This month’s Clickin Moms blog link up challenges us to shoot through glass. Off and on during the month, I would think of the topic, but never seemed to be anywhere where an idea just jumped out at me. I did a few lame attempts at home, and finally settled for some shots at my church this week. But I do offer up these photos from LAST month’s trip to San Diego where I took a few shots of the spectacular view of downtown San Diego from my son’s apartment. I did not use a tripod (tsk, tsk) and shot at a very high ISO (6400!) so yes, there is digital noise! And what did I learn from taking these photos? Use a tripod! Check for reflections (they are almost impossible to edit out). Do it right the first time- our son has since moved to a new apartment, and I will never have the opportunity to retake these photos.
To keep myself honest, here are a few photos I did take this week. They are through glass, but not quite with the dramatic view. . .
Flowers as shot through the sliding glass door of the sanctuary at church:
This is almost the same view- but with the focus on the door. Hmmm, the glass isn’t quite clean!
And here is the stained glass over the door, shot from inside:
