New glasses, pair 1

I got two new pairs of glasses today. I also found out that for me, with the gear I have and no assistant and the lighting inside my apartment, it is nearly impossible to take a photograph where the glasses are important and visible and yet not reflecting glare like crazy or leaving me with my head tilted at some strange angle. I seriously took over 100 exposures this afternoon trying to get a shot where I thought I looked decent AND the glasses looked decent.

 

Even with 100 exposures at my disposal I ended up working on this one for at least 30 minutes until I got something I thought was tolerable.

 

Even with all that it's hard to tell that the frames are tortoiseshell and not just black or brown, and I give up, I can't do no better on my own.

 

All I could think was, "Where's Sean Setters when I need him?"
