Hide the unwanted reflections, that is.
This photo was taken -by me- in front of a window, Wednesday morning (as set for a corporate shoot: Denise was my assistant).
I lit that with an umbrella on the left, a little Honl photo softbox on the right, and later a rim light right behind. So when we started, we had this, of course:
Moving the umbrella (to the left, where there was more space) and my tripod fixed that. But the fill light was more problematic:

Nope, it isn’t. The similarity in colour and composition, and the enigmatic smile.. indeed, similar. You recall my recent post about colour? (If not, scroll down a week). That’s the importance of colour. When you check images with Google, google uses colour and tone to find “similar images”.
