    i did some photos today, and i am still new at this... well the girl wore glasses and, what im wanting to know is how to fit it to where theres no so much of what shes looking around at or the flash in her glasses...I dont really know how to ask it but i think its understandable lol

    Are you referring to reducing the reflection from your model's glasses ?

    If the reflections aren't too bad, you may be able to reduce them with some post processing. Ideally you want the person to remove the glasses if they are comfortable with that. If not, angle your lighting so that it doesn't bounce back to the camera. Can you post one of the shots?

    You can ask them to lift the glasses slight at the back so the angle of the lens points down slightly.

    Second you can pose the eyeglass wearer so their shoulders and head are not parallel to the camera and have them only move their eyes to look at the camera. You must be careful they don't have to strain their eyes to look at the camera.

    Third, use a flash (strobed light) that is not on the camera (Off Camera Flash, OCF).

    The 3rd option is the most desireable because it allows for more interesting lighting.

    I read somewhere that if the person your shooting has an old pair of glasses, have them bring them, but get the glass taken out of them. That way they are wearing glasses, but no reflections.

    They can be re-touched out, but it's best not to get them in the first place. Keith's 3rd suggestion is, as he said, the best one.
