Removing Glare from Eyeglasses

January 24, 2020  •  1 Comment

Many people who wear eyeglasses have glasses with a non-reflective coating. Even so, when photographing someone with glasses it is sometimes impossible to eliminate the reflection of lighting. There are all kinds of tricks to removing the glare while taking the photo: changing the angle of the lights, the subject, or even the glasses. Once I even removed the lenses from the glasses!

Original photo with glare

In the case of my most recent headshot session, no matter what I did I couldn't eliminate the reflection. I tried everything I could, but there just wasn't enough time to keep experimenting.

My solution was to photograph the subject without his glasses. When I got to my studio I did some magic and got the result I was looking for.

 

These photos show the original photo with the reflection, a photo without his glasses on, and the final result.

This is like a photography at it's finest. Taking photos without the eyeglasses to remove the glare and then putting it back on using certain apps is such a clever idea.
