A Photo a Week: Under Glass

under_glass_nmp

Salt Lake City is home to an amazing French bakery appropriately named Gourmandise The Bakery. I went in after a fun afternoon of shooting pictures around the city and Temple Square, and I couldn’t resist taking some pictures of the pastry offerings on display in the glass cases.

Shooting pictures through glass can be a tricky business. You have to account for any glare from artificial and natural lighting. You also have to make sure that your camera is focusing on the item behind the glass and not the glass itself. And you have to make the proper adjustments (either in the camera or later in processing) for any color aberrations that can happen because of the previous two things. But it can also give you some amazing images.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF ITEMS UNDER GLASS.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

On this shot, I love the in-focus flowers and the out-of-focus couple.
