I need to take a picture of a bus driver driving the bus and it needs to be taken from the front, the whole front of the bus needs to be visible and the driver as well. It can't be taken from the side and I am of course having trouble with the reflections.

Is there any way to make this happen? Do you think a circular polarizer would help? Any tips welcome

can you move the bus ?

Have the front of it in shade, with nothing brightly lit behind you/ dark wall/ deep shadows behind you, then light the bus driver from within ?

yes a polarizing filter should work well, just try to have the bus parked in the shade or pointed away from the sun and with few surrounding trees or cars

Thank you, lighting the driver from inside is probably a great idea, I'll see if I can manage to rent equipment for that.

Yes, I can move the bus, I'll try to keep it in the shade.
