Annoying Glasses Issue…
This is one of those annoying little things that very often you don’t notice until after you have shot the video!
The solution is simple so the first thing to do when shooting people with glasses is to be aware that they may be a problem.
The second thing is to look at your lighting positions and imagine a straight line from the light to the glasses and then the camera.
Lokk through the viewfinder or at the display screen and really check to see what is happening.
All you have to do is adjust the light position to makes sure you are not getting the reflection.
Just check that the new position of the lighting has not caused some other strange problem with how your subject looks!

Scene Detection Will Save You So Much Time - Wondershare Filmora 12
Scene detection is a tool that you will find in many types of video editing software and is one that is often overlooked especially at the beginning of a project.

This is where scene detection comes in and can be a real life saver .
