The First Post!

Hello, and welcome!  My name is Samantha Decker and I will be blogging here about all things photography related.  If you're looking for up-to-the minute news on gear, you've come to the wrong place, but I will share my thoughts on developments in the photography world.  This being the first post of Through the Glass, I thought I might lay out just a little of what you can expect from me in the months to come on this new blog:

How to take beautiful long exposure images any time of the day:
Nauset Light Beach

Light After the Rain

How to make ordinary shots more interesting:
Admiring Impressionist Artwork

How to take better shots of your pets:
Is It Safe To Come Out Now?

My thoughts on gear and other trending developments in the photography world (because who wouldn't want to hear yet another random person's opinions?):
Photographer's Toolkit

And for topics I don't know as much about, (such as astrophotography), I'll showcase the work of others and direct you to other fine photography blogs.
