I have a bunch more I should edit, but I did these so far.

Equipment - Canon 6D, 70-200L II, 24-70L II, Yongnuo YN500ex, YN568II, and wireless triggers. Also a softbox, umbrella and gels.

2,3 and 5 are cute. I really like 2 except there is a funny reflections (?) in her glasses. Seems to be picking up the green in her dress.

The reflection is from a coating on the glasses. My glasses have them too and it seems like a pain to try and not get it in my pictures. Maybe I have the lighting tilted wrong?

I liked #2 best as well.

It's not always possible to get rid of 100% of reflections. Esp if their classes have a curved front surface. Much easier with glasses that are flat fronted.

Luckily, there's photoshop. It's not normally that hard to clone out.

I'll have to look up ways to get rid of it. I tried the healing tool to no help.

Healing tool, patch tool, clone stamp. They all do similar things but work slightly differently and work better or worse in specific cases.

one thing I would recommend is doing your cloning / healing to a new layer, then it needs to be a bit less perfect as you can adjust the opacity and blend it in a bit more. If you half the reflections you're in a lot better place.


eg:

Sorry, not a wonderful example, but all I have to hand at work
