I get a lot of clients asking “should I wear my glasses?” Yes! If you have seniors who normally wear glasses why should they leave them off for their senior portraits?! What I like to do is do pictures with both. Some with glasses, and some with them off or used as an accessory in a pocket or hand. Glasses can add character and personality to a portrait. Heck, nowadays there are kids wearing glasses with fake lenses purely for the style impact! Colored glasses, tortoise shell and slim frames are all great options.
Tip for photographing glasses:
– make sure you keep your aperture smaller , a 4 or 5.6, so that the eyes and lenses are both in focus since they are on different planes– KRISTIE
