Dougie was con­stantly scan­ning for in­ter­est­ing pic­tures, an­gles and ex­pres­sions, so I tried to fol­low his ex­am­ple and I spot­ted this girl sit­ting be­hind the win­dow of a café. I loved the way she was su­per­im­posed on the re­flec­tion of the street out­side, but the aut­o­fo­cus did strug­gle – my D610 was lock­ing on to the re­flected scene, not the girl’s face. I got the shot af­ter a cou­ple of at­tempts, and then Dougie ex­plained how he of­ten switches to man­ual fo­cus when shoot­ing through glass to avoid this. The scene can change in an in­stant, and you of­ten don’t get a sec­ond chance.
