There is no trick other than to move the camera or the light to an angle where you don't get a reflection (remember the rule, angle of incidence equals angle of reflection.) Sometimes a large black flag can hide the reflection but that doesn't always work if the only place that the flag works also blocks all the light on the subject.

Sometimes when I shoot framed art I relieve the reflections by placing a black scrim or board in the source area, so the reflected image is of the black board. Other than that, polarizers are your best bet.

I find that Polas only work at certain specific camera angles to kill the reflections from a light in a window. Besides, if you're trying to expose for a nighttime city landscape, you don't want to lose a stop and a half of exposure from the Pola -- it would be better to just find an angle without the reflection.

As to the best method of creating a softlight, that just depends on the space, how soft you want it, power, etc. The larger the soft light, the softer it will be but the bigger reflection it will create, which will be harder to frame out.
