If you have any tips to share for best lighting for someone with glasses, I would appreciate it. Getting frustrated! thank you.
A little bit of an occasional reflection isn’t bad, but too much reflection can be distracting. I raise my key light(s) up as high as I can to minimize the reflection, while keeping the lighting looking good. Additionally, you can pivot the glasses down by raising them higher above the ear where the normally hook behind the ears. Do it just enough so that it’s not very noticeable on camera, but enough to limit how much reflection is seen. Glasses usually fit tightly enough that they’ll stay in place like this. It may be slightly uncomfortable for the talent, but will usually help in losing reflections. Good luck!
