This is one of the most common questions we get asked before a professional, corporate headshot. Many people love the style of their glasses. They admit they might feel more sophisticated or intelligent when wearing glasses and want their corporate headshot to exude that same confidence. But, then they worry about the glare that can cast off a lens.
Glasses can sometimes pose a problem in photography; however, an experienced professional photographer can handle this like, well, a pro.
If you wear glasses the majority of the time then it is likely you will want to wear glasses in your portrait as well. So, there are many things a photographer can do to alleviate the potential for glare in the photograph, and to ensure your eyes are clearly seen in the final product.
If you are planning on wearing your glasses, do give a heads up. We might change the lighting or the angle of the photograph to ensure there is no glare on your lens.
By watching the angles, knowing where the light is coming from and properly positioning you, and even tilting your glasses slightly we can eliminate the glare before we’ve shot the photograph, so it doesn’t have to become a post-production worry.
