The problem with shooting glass is the glass can act like a mirror; it sees everything in the background, plus all of my production lights and sometimes me, behind the camera.
The cool thing about shooting glass is it can create fabulous reflections of your subject. It’s all a matter of angle or “perspective,” as I like to say.
This client makes glass windshields for trucks and huge window panels for skyscrapers. Both production locations afforded the opportunity to play off of the reflections of the surroundings and of the people working in the plant.
We also got to photograph glass processes in a large plant in Texas where, as you know, everything is bigger (big plant, big sky, etc, etc!!)
