Light It Up
Check Your Specs
1. Turn away from the window: Position yourself at an angle to the window to reduce the amount of sunshine reflecting in your lenses.
2. Use an Umbrella: Grab that $15 white umbrella to soften the light source. While the reflection may be larger in your glasses, it will be less distracting.
3. Bounce Light Off the Ceiling: Try bouncing light off the ceiling above your phone. This technique softens the light and can reduce glare.
4. Upgrade Your Lighting: Consider upgrading to lights (we like these). They create a rectangular reflection, less obvious than a ring light, and are softer and more flattering.
