Does anyone here ever see guys wearing sunglasses inside a studio due to all the light blasting? Since I've been working with more elaborate lighting setups, I've been getting light induced migraines so thought it'd be a good idea.

 

Obviously taking them off every now and then when critical viewing involving color/contrast comes up.

 

Thanks.

I live in a baseball cap for this reason. I'm not a fan of sunglasses but I see it every now and then. I'd recommend non polarised and single shade so you don't have to keep taking them on and off ALL the time.

I believe its a law that only movie stars, their agents and producers can wear sunglasses on set in a studio.. you will then have to look bored and hold a bottle of water also all day.. and take the occasional call "from the coast"..
