Photo Tip: Catchlights

April 16, 2010 Leave a comment

Catchlights are important when creating appealing portraits.  In the absence of a strong light source, simply capturing detail in the eyes can also make a big difference.  Of course, good-looking subjects go a long way too.

Take a look at this handsome mug, for example.  The sparkles in those big, dark eyes really connect with the viewer.  Its personality left a lot to be desired though.

This angry crayfish clamped down on a nightcrawler that was intended for a trout in Powells Creek, near Halifax.
