…from the zoo, telling that he tried to get a shot of the lynx cubs but it wasn’t possible because of the glass I thought wait a minute.

To proof that it is possible I took this image in the weekend. No reflection of the glass at all. I see many people struggling with this. They got massive reflections or firing a flash right into the glass and in fact make a nice picture of the flash’s reflection.

It’s very easy to prevent all this. Just bump you lens onto the glass. Not to hard of course and make sure you have a lens hood on it. If there is still any reflection just cover the area where light spills in with you hand or ask for assistance with this.

Then take your reflection free shot. Just as easy as that.
