Back to the World of Birds at the Bronx Zoo—with a flash on my camera this time. Shooting through glass is a challenge often resulting in light bouncing back in a big blast that can ruin your photo. Stand at an angle to the glass rather than in front of it when taking your picture. The distracting flashback is gone, and reflections are minimized. Flash really helped to illuminate my friend’s face as he met this colorful quetzal.
Tip: I wear black when I have assignments with glass so I don’t show up in the reflections myself!
