    Sounds interesting!! Are you going to talk about C.R.A.P. too?? LOL (contrast, repetition, Alignment, proximity). I learned that from Robin Williams' graphic design books. It really made my pages so much better once I realized there is design behind great pages too!!

    I am looking forward to this!!

    This month, we are discussing the technique of shooting through objects.

    The technique of shooting through an object or placing an object in front of your lens can instantly add an element of interest and dimension to a photograph. If you shoot through something that is transparent or semi-transparent, you create interesting reflections, blurs or patterns on your subject. If you shoot through something that’s opaque, you create dimension by having an out of focus foreground element.

    Level 1 - The easiest thing to shoot through is glass or plastic. Examples - windows, prism, glass orb/crystal ball, drinking glass or bottle, plastic wrap, stained glass window, magnifying glass

    Level 2 - Shooting "through" objects...or put simply - having something out of focus in the foreground/just in front of your lens. Examples - foliage, fences, a picture frame, copper tube, or anything else in the environment

    Very interesting photo perspective, I'm gonna give it a try immediately with my mobile and take a picture through the window (outside it's pretty cold, lol)
