need some advice...

so I know I'm not around here much at all... I'm just extremely busy right now, but I have a quick question that I know you girls can help me with. My DD just got glasses and I have done a few sessions with clients that wear glasses, but I'm constantly taking pics of my girls and would love to hear some tips about what's the easiest way to reduce the glare from her glasses. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

here's a quick snap shot of her sporting her new glasses... she LOVES them!!!

TIA!!!

I generally have them scoot their glasses down their nose just a hair to reduce glare. She is SO cute!

She looks great! My DD wears them too (she's 3 1/2) and it's all about the angle you shoot at....if I move slightly to the left or right, up, or down, the glare is almost always gone. Or I can tell her to adjust her head slightly too. It usually doesn't take much.

If you have enough light, a polarizing filter might help some.

thanks for the tips... I'm not so worried when I photograph her alone, as she cooperates quite well, but when I try for all 3 together, now that's another story... LOL!!!! I'm so used to not really paying a whole lot of attention to my oldest since my other 2 are so much littler and they need more guidance. This is will be interesting getting it just right. thanks again!!!

Jen ...

My DH wears them and I think Amy hit on it best - it's all about the angles! When we're outside, I may have to change my angle or ask him to turn his head a bit. If we're inside, especially if I'm using my studio strobes, I try to make sure the light is coming at angles - I try for about 45 degrees above and to the right or left of the upper rim of his glasses.

HTH!
