  1. I've had this same problem in the past and have been able to resolve it with three different techniques: 1) Get your lens set to the focal length required and bring it as close as possible to the glass (even pressed up against it if needed to reduce glare, reflection and flash back. 2) You can also reduce/eliminate all the reflections by wearing all black and shooting from your hip (only if you have a swivel screen). 3) Instead of using your camera, you can opt to use any cell phone that has good image quality. These can usually be pressed against the glass and maintained quite steady. Also, use your timer release if you need to reposition. 4) The final option which works under all circumstances as long as you are able to get up against the window is to purchase a Lenskirt LENSKIRT Flexible Lens Hood. I hope this helps. Many of my night time landscape photos of NYC were made possible due to the use of a Lenskirt. You can see my images on Instagram: Scene_In_New_York
  2. I really like this capture, but I think your subject would make more of an impact if you cropped in much tighter. Eliminating the two gents in the right background would place the subject in the first third of the frame and give it a much stronger presence. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

  7. I have a few bags and tripods. But when I want to pack light (and casual), I use my VEO tripod and the VEO 37 camera bag (like a messenger unit). I can easily fit my X-T1, flash, a few lenses and either a monopod or tripod.
  8. As someone with decades of software/application design, programming and testing, I have adopted a few strategies in regards to firmware and software revisions for each and every device I own: 1) Never install firmware/software revisions within the first 10 business days. 2) Always understand why the revision was developed and rolled out. Read the release notes. 3) Read industry magazines and watch videos from other professionals that talk about their discoveries following installation and utilization of the revision. My experience has shown me that nearly no level of critical testing can demonstrate and test every single variation that a user base will put a revision through. These issues have plagued Apple, Microsoft, Adobe and Google indiscriminately. Sh*t happens. I always anticipate the worse, but hope for the best. My safeguards have proven to be effective time and again.
  9. Hi Everyone, I shoot food photography and travel with great success via my X-T1 (35mm 1.4, and 18-135mm WR). I have been invited to the Boston Seaport World Trade Center, an indoor convention space illuminated with energy efficient LED lighting. Most shots will have to be handheld since there will be little space for a tripod on the floor space. I find myself a little intimidated by the low lighting aspect present during the event action. I am desperately seeking advice on photo recipes and best practices for capturing some great images with my X-T1. Thanks!
