as others have said, the circ pol is more for outdoor shooting to darken skys or mitigate reflections off window glass, leaves, rocks, etc...

for portraits, however, i'll put mine on to shoot someone wearing glasses to tame some of the reflections...or if they were wearing some shiny vinyl clothes, think '77 Ace Frehley outfit, etc...

I hadn't thought of that use. I have a granddaughter that wears glasses and I have a hard time keeping the reflection off her lenses. I'll have to try that with her.
