Some tips for your photograph

1. Wait till night-time, when the windows are lit up and at their best.

2. Turn off your flash, but keep those hands steady to avoid blur.

3. Take the photograph wide format, not upright. That is, turn your phone sideways.

4. Stand in front of the window and take the photo straight on – not at an angle. The image at the top of this story, of a Harrods window in a Christmas past, is a good style to copy.

5. Wait for a gap – if there is one – when there are no passers-by.

6. Don’t zoom on a smartphone. The image will just pixelate.
