    Photographing from the Eureka Skydeck

    I am hoping to shoot some sunset / night photos from the Eureka Skydeck in the next few weeks. I'll have my 5D Mk IV + a 16-35mm wide angle lens + a tripod.

    Any suggestions on the best way to block out reflections? I was there a few years ago during the day and the reflections were very prominent.

    And any other advice will be very welcome.

    Cheers

    get the lens as close as possible to the window
    i assume there will be glass involved

    Photography is painting with light

    Thanks Mudman. If I remember correctly, the glass on on an angle and slopes away, and hence is hard to reach. But I'll give it a go. I might also bring along a large-ish black cloth and try to use that to block out the reflections.

    Good idea. I have one, so I'll bring it along.

    I did a web search and came across the article below, which specifically discusses photographing at the Eureka SkyDeck. This starts about halfway through the article. The secret is a small tripod (eg a gorillapod) and a dark jacket (or other black cloth). I have a dark grey jacket so I'll try that.
