One of my favorite forms of photography is what I call Window Shots... which are usually Knick Knacks in the front windows of stores in small towns situated in the Foothills east and south of Sacramento, CA. Today I got going early and headed to Old Folsom, CA looking for Christmas theme subjects. When I arrived at the first store, this little Elf sitting in a pouch next to Santa caught my eye... so I knelt down and captured the moment. 

 

Enjoy,

 

Don

Very nice shot, Don.  I'm very impressed that you were able to make this without getting window reflections.  :)

To those of you who stopped by and your remarks, Thank You.

 

As for the reflections, my trick is to get the lens as close to the glass as possible, even place the lens hood against the glass, closing the distance nulls out most reflections. In addition, I move left to right until I null out the reflections and glare using my body to block what remains. It is not always 100% effective but, applying these methods has worked well for me. 

 

Regards,

 

Don

You can also use a polarizer to remove glare.

Thanks, Dennis.
