    you have a shadow under your chin. this isn’t a good example of lighting. your side of your face when closeup is also too dark. the best quality i have ever seen is on those apple ads where the guy is talking about the latest macbook pro. apple sure knows how to shoot video. this is too amateur.

    There’s not much glare from his glasses because the lights are higher up than his head and the camera, you can see reflections only when he looks up. He also seems to be aware of the potential of glare and looks up only for emphasis.

    In regards to the questions how do you light your talent with glasses and not get any reflection. Use glasses that have flat lenses not round that’s the way to go. The round lenses will pick up most of the lights in the room. One trick… move the glasses forward on the bridge of the nose so that the lenses points down a bit. This will change the reflection angle. If you have the room move the keylight as far back as you can, the farther back the light is the smaller the reflection.
