transparent thoughts

This a no home work post. Actually this is a post from a request.

Photographing transparent objects.

Sounds hard doesn't it? Rest assured....it is! There are a couple options when you need to do this:

1. Shoot from a slight angle
2. DON'T light directly ) dont use your flash and if you do use a external flash, bounce it of the ceiling)
3. natural lighting I have found works best.
4. if you are wanting to show that it is transparent put something behind it....books, flowers...anything.
5. if you are catching your reflection in the item you can build a tent for your object and leave a hole for your lens.

You will have to play with it. move abound find a good angle to shoot from.

hello masta!

okay, so this is a little off your photographing transparent items topic, but I wanted your opinion. If one is in the market for an external flash...would one be sorry that she purchased the canon 430ex speedlite because it was 130 bucks cheaper than the 580??? or is the 580 really worth the extra dough?

I have had trouble photographing rain on windows - it just doesn't turn out sharp. I basically have the same equipment that you have.
