Weekly Photography Challenge – Glass

This should be easy enough to find subjects for this week’s challenge – glass – the tricky part is how to photograph it. Glass reflects everything including the light source and even yourself. So how you approach this will be up to you. Shoot a crystal glass in the studio, photograph an old weathered window pane, work with the reflections and go with them for effect, or shoot through glass. Get creative.

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
