Thread: Taking photos in exhibition

    Default Taking photos in exhibition

    Hi All,

    Not sure if this is a valid question. I like to go to exhibit and also take photos whenever photography is allow.

    My question is there a way to prevent the reflection appearing in your photo when you take a subject enclosed in a glass case?

    Cheers,

    be careful with your shooting angle, and use a CPL

    A properly used CPL will help, though not completely eliminate reflection.

    I did a wiki on circular polarizing filter and it seems to be use to enhance photos. I dont quite understand how it reduce reflections. How much does a CPL usually cost in SG?

    Thanks,

    I like number 3. Do you press your lens firmly against the glass case?

    Thanks. No I do not press my lens against the glass. Just try shooting from an angle where I do not see my own (and other visitors') reflections.

    Certain place do not allow flash; be prepared to shoot with high ISO.
