Removing Reflections From Your Client’s Glasses
This walkthrough is in response to a question on our forum. Rob Dunse (who kindly provided the photograph that I use in this walkthrough) asked if there’s a way of removing those nasty, purple reflections you sometimes get when photographing someone who is wearing glasses. It occurs when you can’t find the relationship between your subject and the lighting where you completely eliminate the problem at the moment you hit that button. While of course it’s much better to avoid it in the first place, let’s face it, sometimes it does happen. So when it does, here’s a quick walkthrough of how to remove it.
The walkthrough mentions the following:
- Using layers in different modes (in this case, the ‘Color’ mode)
- Using layer masks
- Using layer styles
- Creating selections from masks
