Larry Peters and Westcott have joined forces to bring you the Eyelighter Reflective Panel. When lighting for portraiture, traditional flat panel reflectors do a good job of providing bounce fill light under the subject's face, but render catchlights in the eyes that can be less than natural. The Eyelighter addresses the problem by providing an arc-shaped white surface that matches the natural curvature of the human eye. The Eyelighter measures 58 x 33 x 23.5" and comes with a carry case for storage and transport.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product Tested the reflector today, and I am very pleased. It was relatively easy to assemble. There is about a 2 play in tilt of the reflector. I do not know if that is by design, but I plan to purchase a tightening knob to keep the angle stable. Provides a good wrap around light for under the chin and neck area. B&H recommends the Turtle Base C-Stand 20 with this product. Save your money...you will never achieve what is shown in the photo. If you wish to pose your subject on a posing stool, I recommend an inexpensive backlight stand or a small tripod--40 inches is just too high with the reflector for women to place the highlight correctly. If you shoot head shots with your subject standing, then everything is good and sturdy at 100%.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome I resisted getting this reflector because of its size but after seeing it demonstrated and seeing the results, I ordered one and I'm loving it. To me, the eyes make the portrait and the Eye-lighter makes eyes beautiful, not to mention the fill it provides around the face. At first it seemed it would be a bit of a chore to set up and break down for when I have to shoot on location but it's really not. Downsides are it is large. It won't fit in the back of my standard pickup truck bed with the cover on like I'd hoped, but again, packing it up is no big deal. Also, if your subject wears glasses, might as well try something else as its almost impossible or be prepared to photoshop the heck out of the image. You can minimize the glare to an extent and then have to photoshop from there. But other than that, it gives terrific results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yeah its good...but I use this in studio. If you're shooting singles of large groups this isn't as helpful as I thought it might be. Its awkward and doesn't include the proper mounting hardware. You will need a back to back 5/8 stud to and a tilter bracket in my opinion. Not to mention a low rise stand to mount it on. If you have the time to play with it...good...it does what its advertised to do. I just found the process awkward and slow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! Finally able to use the Eyelighter and I'm extremely happy. Gives a great look and beautiful catch lights. Another great accessory to add to my repertoire. You will need a stand that is low enough to get the proper distance from your subject, especially if you have them sit down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! I absolutely love this product. It's a little hard to put together the first time but once it's together - it's beautiful and the quality is amazing. I've used other style reflectors in the past but they always left weird catch lights in the eyes. This product is easy to use the results speak for themselves. The carry case was a great added bonus I didn't expect!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, Innovative Tool Firstly, this is an expensive reflector. Secondly - I recommend you buy it. Nothing I have used is as functional and predictable in filling the underchin shadow naturally. A bit fiddly the first few times you set it up, it is well made, and survives repeated transport and setting up stress. If you just remover to always measure that critical 30 and center the device with the client's face, you will nail perfect fill and eyes each time. Talking apart and putting back together is not difficult, but also not that quick and foolproof. That is about the only drawback I can mention. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed for my seniors! This reflector has been around for years and I finally jumped on getting it! I photograph seniors and it gives a very pretty light in the eye. It surrounds the pupil nicely. I have found that it works best on seniors with light eyes, but darker eyes look great too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent reflector for portraits I've been focusing a great deal on portraiture and wanted a way to make the eyes of my subjects really pop without having to do it in post. I recently had my own portraits done, and the photographer had the eyelighter - after seeing the catchlights in my eyes from the resulting photos, I knew I had to invest in one. When positioned correctly, the eyelighter creates not only a lovely half-moon shaped catchlight in the iris, it provides excellent fill light to the subject's face. I use it with a large parabolic umbrella, and that's all I need for most portraits and backdrops. I do not see myself using any other reflector for portrait work. The only drawback, if one can call it that, is the size. It does take up space, but it is easy to move around. Dismantling it to take on location is also simple, and it comes with a very handy carrying case for that purpose. Beautifully constructed, the materials are high quality, so I believe it is well worth the price. I managed to find this on sale for $50 off the typical price, so I did not hesitate. One note if you plan on using this for children's portraiture, ensure you have a short lightstand or something safe the children can stand on. On a typical 6-7 foot lightstand on its lowest setting, I need to stand for the eyelighter to be positioned correctly, and I'm 5'3.
