    Family portrait photography mistake 04: Glaring glasses

    9 secrets to using a tripod like a pro: use a remote shutter release

    Glasses can pose problems in portraits because they reflect light and suffer from glare.

    If a member of your family normally wears glasses, asking them to take them off means making them look very different in the photos.

    A polarising filter over the lens and correctly rotated can cutout the glare, but it will also reduce the amount of light entering the lens and you’ll have to adjust the exposure accordingly.

    Alternatively, move around until you find an angle to shoot from that avoids the glare. It may take time, but it’s usually possible.
