Photography 101: Glass

Incorporate a form of glass into your image to add a layer of complexity.

Glass is incredibly fun to experiment with when taking pictures, resulting in multi-layered and sometimes unexpected shots. – The Daily Post

The fascination of glass is that it can create a feeling of being separated like there is a barrier despite its transparent surface.

While in other cases, it can create a reflection when light hits it at a certain angle.  In this case, it widens the perspective of what’s going on in the street.

There’s so much to do with glass.  I had done one before with the conversion of angles using a angular vase. I could’ve done one through multiple colorful glass bottles but I couldn’t find a subject that worked.  Maybe I’ll do another one focused on that one day, just for fun 🙂
