Michelle R. Kovach April 26, 2007

Thank you very much Chastity & John! I appreciate your comments!

Yes Chastity, It's quite tough shooting through glass if you don't know how. I was using a diffused flashed when I did all my aquarium shots & I had people asking me if I got the glare off the glass. I'd show them how to do it & they were thrilled when the didn't get the bounce that blows out your whole picture. :)

Have a great day!
