Have you ever noticed that when you try to take a picture or video with someone who wears glasses they can often be reflective? If so, you might be asking yourself why this doesn’t happen that often in movies or television shows. Well there are good methods to ensure this doesn’t happen and that the shot is captured as intended with no distraction.
Glasses with no lenses?
What many people in the industry do is simply utilize glasses that have no lens. This means it is literally just the frame. The solution here is simple, no lens no glare. Furthermore, this is really hard to notice when on a screen because glasses are clear anyways. So seeing just the frame will give the illusion that someone is wearing glasses when they are in fact not. This also not only helps with the glare problem but means they won’t have to be cleaned or maintained which could help save some time and effort.
What if I want glare?
Showing a glare in someone’s glasses can be useful at times so it is important to not completely dismiss it. For example, seeing what a person is looking at by seeing the reflection in their glasses can make for a very interesting and layered sequence. This can be done by either carefully planning out the angles and lighting for lenses or can even be added in post-production now. There are also many other ways to do this and as with everything creativity always helps.
