    Eliminating glass reflection

    We need to take photographs of the furniture in our showroom window. How is it possible to eliminate the reflection in the window? I am assuming a very powerful light of which we don't have or an enormous black cloth to eliminate the other side of the street. Does anyone have more practical suggestions

    You could try using a circular polarizing filter.

    If the reflection is at a 45 degree angle it can be all but eliminated by a polarizer.

    Could you post a larger photo? It's impossible to see what you're up against in that tiny thumbnail.
    The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist.

    It sounds to me like it's not reflections you're battling, but the view outside. Is that right?

    or you could hire a professional photographer.

    Reflections are all about the "family of angles". Every shoot pool? Same thing.

    Light: Science and Magic an Introduction to Photographic Lighting, by Fil Hunter. The book will cost you $30 or so, used.

    Great thanks for all of your replies. I will try a polarizer first and go from there
