My new house has a large enclosed shower with 2 sides glass. I have been pondering shooting a model in that space, but I have noticed that warm water really fogs up the glass of the shower.

The room itself is large with good ventilation, and the mirrors don't fog up at all. Is there a trick to doing a shower shoot without fogging up the glass and not using cold water?

be careful if you need artificial light. Remember how much of a charge even those on-camera flashes give off if dropped in the water!

Having said that -- have you thought about taking one of the panels off? That would give you the proper access and might might be too hard to get on and off.

I have seen a product that you wipe on that prevents fogging. I'll do research and see if I can find it again.

I have used a plastic bag over the camera to maintain the ambient temp. & relative humidity that the camera starts off in to shoot candids in areas of high temp. and humidity. Just keep the camera in the bag until you want to shoot, than only lift the bag high enough to expose the lens shoot quick and cover the camera back up after the shors are done. Remember to keep the plastic bag opening on bottom. Good luck

Ed,

Dont know if this is what you want to hear, but I have been shooting showers for years, they are one of my favorite things to shoot when shooting web content.

If I were you, just take the door off!!!!! in the first picture below, thats exactly what I did. It was a glass cubical and had a glass front door - Poof, it went first.

Below that is one of my favorite shower pictures, agian no shower door.

regards,

DP

My company was contracted to produce a series of videos and photos of a medical product that pts. use in the shower. So here's what we did.

If your shooting through glass and want to keep is clear, just apply baby shampoo to the glass after you clean it. All anti-fog solutions and pastes are wetting solutions which is what soap is. So save some money and just use shampoo. BTW, that knowledge comes from 35 years of scuba diving.

If you keep the room temp up and water temp comfortable but not hot, that also will prevent fogging or steaming.

I'd also suggest a clear or UV filter over the lens to prevent splashing or a mid telephoto to stay out of the spray zone. Also be very aware of electrical hazards for the crew and model(s). Hot lamps should be protected behind shields because tungsten bulbs really hate getting a drop of water on them...boom and everything electrical should be on a ground fault circuit! In small spaces on location it's easrier to knock something over so I'd also suggest duct taping down all stands to the floor. A power head in the shower with the model would be ugly...g and dangerous.

Best
