How To Get Out Of The Fog And Get The Sun In Your Window

The solution? Start by changing your mindset. What causes most of the fog in the first place? In this article, you may discover that your work and other external circumstances actually reduce your sunshine exposure.

It is hard to find sunlight when you are indoors. But not every problem is made worse by the absence of sunlight (in fact, it can be a great help in many situations). When your windows are tinted or covered with curtains or blinds the sun often is not in your line of sight. So how long does this slow down the sun’s reach? Find out in this article.

When the weather outside is sunny and the atmosphere is clear, the sun’s reach can be measured in meters. So how far does the sun actually reach each day? Find out in this article.

There is a way to test the effect of windows on the sun’s rays and temperature. To do this you will need a small, clear area away from buildings, a camera or two and some cardboard to be your test-subject. In your office you may want to set up a window shade before you begin the test. Start by taking a photo with your camera, if the sun is shining directly into the camera the picture will be dark or black. This occurs where the sun’s rays and atmosphere are so weak and diffuse that the camera and the glass are not enough to capture any image in a decent condition.

With some cardboard, a piece of glass, a black cardboard or a piece of plastic for the film you will insert the test subject, and leave it to dry.

Once the cardboard is dry, remove it from the camera, cut out any white background and tape the subject in front of the picture window. This is the best location for your test of the effect of windows on the sun.

If you use the same method to test for your windows’ effect on the atmosphere you should have an indoor image of your cardboard or other subject, with both a dark and a light spot. Now compare the two images for your windows. The light spot should be on the horizon . This should be dark if the window is open.

The dark spot above the horizon can be your sun. If the window is closed and closed at the same time the sun will be blocked. As long as it is not on the horizon, there is an effect of the windows on the sun. There is no other outdoor spot where you can test this. The effects are only seen on the windows’ side, so it is not obvious whether the sun will go behind and light up a window on the other side. If you try to take the photo using any location other than the center of a clear day the sun will be blocked. If you have to move the subject in order to get the effect you can, of course, set up the conditions you want, and take the picture elsewhere. To do this, find a location with a clear sky and a horizon and set your camera to the widest aperture you have, say f/11.

Next, look for an appropriate spot outside the window in the field of the sun. Look for a spot that has no other objects in front of it. Find a spot where the sun, without the cloud’s help, will always get some light. Take a picture to compare for the effect.

Take it even further. Turn down your aperture to f/13.5 or f/16.1 to get an effect of the sun’s rays that will be close to your windows’ effect, if the sun is outside the clouds the sun goes around the outside. Even this can be difficult when the sunlight is strong since the sun’s rays will probably reflect off the clouds.

If you have to take the photo outdoors, do your best to avoid the clouds of your subject of observation.
