Get anti-reflective coating on all your glasses. Doesn't cost much and largely eliminates glare. Problem solved.

Hi Mario,
that reminds me of a long time ago. There was a time when I had to take pictures of about 20 to 30 TV set's a day (for a couple of catalogs). The first thing I had to do in the morning was to set up the TV in the set and then use Anti-Glare-Spray to cover the TV Screen. That Stuff cut the Glare of the screens, no matter how the Studio-Lights were set, pretty amazing stuff, but I'm not sure that would work on glasses.

In the movies they often have glasses with no glass in them - I read somewhere they did this a lot in the Harry Potter films. Probably not a practical solution for most photo-shoots.

Another quick tip is to raise and tilt the glasses off the ear before shooting. You won't notice this adjustment in the photos except that most glare magically disappears.

Thanks for sharing, Sepiana. I've not had to do this (most of my subjects having fur), but it's good to be aware of these tips. Do you follow the Pioneer Woman? My daughter in law's mother told me about her last fall, but she likes her for her cooking blog.
