Catchlights

Beautiful eyes in portraits have beautiful catchlights or eye lights. A catchlight is basically a reflection of a bright light source in your model’s eyes.

Healthy eyes are bright and shiny surfaces and will reflect their surroundings. 

It’s this highlight that gives the eyes life and depth. Without a catchlight, eyes can look dark and flat.

In this tutorial, Gina will teach you:

  • The importance of catchlights in portraits
  • How to figure out what catchlights a photographer has used
  • Gina’s personal favourite catchlights
  • The best place to position a catchlight and why.
