Photography 101 Day 17: Glass

Incorporate glass in today’s image: a window, a mirror, a wine glass, sunglasses, or something else. It doesn’t matter what form the glass takes.

Today’s Tip: We’ve practiced shooting at different angles and from unique POVs. How can you interact with glass to create an interesting photo?

I love looking through blue glass!

Just the other day I found myself walking the isles of TJ MAXX,   looking for frames for the family photos I wanted to hang on our “hall of fame.”  I found two, threw them in the buggy, and proceeded  to the register when my eye caught the shimmer of blue glass.

There on the shelf sat a large and almost awkward  blue glass vase.  Being the queen of awkward, a chord of kinship stirred in my heart and just like that, I was in love.

The deep blue hues, I realized, would compliment the blue table cloth I had previously purchased for our dining room table.  And with a price tag of only $12.99, it was a no brainer…the ole blue girl would go home with me!

I used the blue glass to complete my photography 101 assignment.  Below are the photos I captured.  Hope you enjoy them!


The blue glass transformed boring into  mystical in the caption above.  I feel I’m under water surveying the scene, much like a fish in an aquarium.


Above I played with cropping and using the flash.  I love the wintry frost appearance.
