Hey everyone,

 

I'm a film student working on a project that requires me to shoot a model miniature. The problem is, the model is inside a protective glass case. It's only about an inch thick, but I can't remove it. 

 

Any tips for lighting the model through the glass? The model is fairly large (6 ft x 6 ft) so I was thinking of using a soft fill on the opposite side than I am shooting to reduce glare but that's kind of restrictive to the shots I can get. 

 

Not sure if anyone has done anything like this before but I thought I'd ask.

 

Thanks!

 

Zach
