People with glasses?
« on: October 05, 2013, 01:34:10 AM »
I am doing a wedding for friends tomorrow morning the lighting is bad so I need to use a flash. At rehersal those that had glasses had the refelection of the flash in their glasses. What can I do about this? Can I fix it in lightroom?

Thanks

Not readily fixed in Lightroom - you can reduce it but not really eliminate it in post

The better solution is to use the flash off camera (practice first!)

I often ask people wearing sunglasses to take them off at a wedding so that the shot looks consistent. I use off camera flash and reflectors to introduce light, this works well with people wearing prescription glasses.

You may want to look at this too

I really think the solution is Gary Friedman's $5 studio set up with wireless flash...
