When you photograph someone with glasses, especially in a studio, watch out for a couple of things.

  • If they make the eyes look smaller, be careful not to turn the head too much. If you do, you will cut chunks off the face. In that case, a more head-on view will often work better.
  • Reflections! Tilt the head down a bit, or move the light source up or sideways slightly more. Always check after a shot that the reflection gremlin has not got you.
  • Some photographers use glass-less frames to avoid these. Today, I do not think that is necessary.

By observing these simple precautions, you can get good photos of someone wearing glasses. Not complicated: as so often it is in the “paying attention”.
