Aug 27, 2011The problem with dirty glasses (365:239)

I had terrible trouble with this shot.

I was trying get a very controlled amount of light from the flash, but I was continually getting a terrible reflection from my glasses. I’d change my position, change the position of the flash (being bounced of a wall). The highlight wouldn’t go away.

It was only when I came to process the pictures I found that the problem was not so much a reflection, but dirt on my glasses. If I’d cleaned them it would have been fine. D’oh! Oh well at least you can’t see the wall in this picture.
