I had to shoot a story in a strip club last year. (it’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it) Got all the usual “pushing the limit” shots. But when it came to getting bites, no one wanted to have their face smeared across the screen. Instead of the usual “shoot the hands or back lit subjects” I actualluy smeared their faces. I found a glass block wall in the club, lit the subjects as usual, and shot thru the wall. It worked so well, that I went out and bought a glass block to carry around for just such occasions. Be careful though, this can be overdone. The effect has to fit in with the rest of the story.
