    Ok, I took this last night of my husband's twin brother and his girlfriend. I like the photo (though I realize it's a bit soft), but I don't know how to keep him from having glare on his head... well, other than to sit him under a tree. :wink: Any advice?

    That's not too bad, I wouldn't worry about it. What you want to watch out for, is a bright shiny spot.

    Hey, I'm pretty bald! And I think you did a great job.

    It's a shiny surface. You avoided any hot spots or garish reflections.

    You did fine.

    Under expose by 1/3 of a stop and use a flash to fill.

    Looks fine. I wouldn't worry about it. In the future, if you're worried about it, you could keep some of that theatrical powder on hand. Although, to tell you the truth, I don't think it's a problem here.

    I see this problem often with people who have oily skin. I usually take care of this during PP by creating a 2nd layer, cloning the shiny area with a neutral skin area, then masking the layer into the original layer and adjusting the opacity.

    That's my quick fix.
