GLASSES GLARES IN HEADSHOTS
BEFORE AND AFTER GALLERY
I often get asked about the practicality of wearing glasses in headshots, with many people asking me if they should just take their glasses off for their photo. The problem is that your headshot should reflect you and how you will appear on a day to day basis, therefore if you do wear glasses regularly then they should be featured in your headshot. Photographing a client with glasses raises several challenges – as a professional photographer, I have to consider any reflections that may be captured in the lens of the glasses. These reflections could be anything from the lights to the camera itself. In an ideal world all my clients that do wear glasses would have an anti-reflective coating applied to the surface of the lens. This would solve all reflective problems when it comes to photographing these customers and gives the glasses a smart, clean finish.
As a photographer in this day and age it is also expected that I am something of a Photoshop expert. When it comes to using Photoshop, in regards to glasses in headshots, it is much more difficult than it seems. The only way around the problem of reflections is to take two different headshots of the client one with them wearing their glasses and one without. Then using photoshop I am able to create a composite image merging both those pictures together. However, this is not without it’s challenges. It is exceptionally hard to get two pictures of the client in the exact same position with the exact same expression and so often it will not work and will give an unnatural look to the finished headshot. However, there are ways around this and I can’t reveal all the tricks just yet but you can check out some of my work below.
