    Glass in all it’s forms. Note: For the purposes of this theme, ceramics and porcelain do not count as glass.

    Another quality theme by Kestrana!

    This should probably be in Tips and Tricks but I’m posting it here just in case someone else needs the advice y’all offer. How do I photograph something glass without getting a reflection of the photographer or her stupid flash in the shot?

    There are probably other ways but I can think of a few options.
    1. use a tripod and a longer exposure with no flash
    2. go into your flash settings (menu -> flash -> manual ->) change to a lower setting like 1/8th to reduce glare
    3. shooting at an angle if you’re shooting through glass
    4. use an off camera flash to the side of where you are shooting from

    A circular polar filter also helps when shooting through glass at an angle. My CP was my very best friend in Vegas.

    Got myself some empty glass bottles from work – hopefully I can get some pretty good photos out of shattering them. Then again, the whole destructive part should be fun anyways.

    But can you play the Great White North theme on them?

    I don’t believe it does, but just checking anyway, but ceramics don’t count as glass, correct? Seems like a silly question, but just for clarification. I’m thinking that it is its own separate category, but just making sure.

    Edit: And I can’t use a pictures of a glass pipe, right? It’s never been used, I just thought it was pretty, but that counts as drug paraphernalia, even though it could be for tobacco and is legal, so a no-no, right?

    I’m guessing ceramics, even porcelain, would be excluded from this competition – seems like the subject should be straight glass.

    What’s wrong with paraphernalia? People have posted photos of their “friends'” plants before.

    it’s just a glass pipe. anyone who sees it as anything else reveals more about themselves than the pipe. Shoot, post, WIN !
