How to remove flare from glasses in a portrait using the clone stamp and layer mask

Photographing a model wearing glasses can be problematic. Glasses are highly reflective and can cause flare or reflections of the light source.

Sometimes the flare is insignificant and it does not become an issue, but sometimes the flare can be so extreme that it distracts from the portrait or obscures the eyes altogether.

In this tutorial, Gina will show you examples of flare or reflections in glasses and how to remove or minimise them. You’ll learn:

  • How to remove flare by asking your model to tilt their head.
  • How to remove flare by merging two images in Photoshop.
  • How to remove flare using the clone stamp.
