The Cafe Kitchen Window

By eric55    
Shooting through a window presents problems. One is reflection. To overcome this I will stand close to the window in order to block the reflection of the glass. Doing so has issues all its own. For one thing standing close to a window draws attention from those inside. Also, standing close to a window while peering inside is sort of like standing close to someone while photographing them - a very uneasy feeling. For me, however, the all important quality I am always shooting for is eye contact. So, drawing the attention of people inside the window is not a bad thing. The most important thing is to shoot just as they see me. Should I wait any longer they will usually either get angry or will turn away and ignore me. To get a through a window shot like this then depends on both nerve and timing. That is the fun of it, though. Good shooting.Wink
