The evil eye - the devil eyes - just a few well known ways to describe what all people in the world know it as - RED EYE. A very annoying little effect of flash photography that all of us know too well. We’ve all seen it. But eliminating it starts with knowing why and how it is created.
How Does Red Eye Happen? Red eye is nothing more than the reflection of light off of the blood vessels in the iris of the eye. This happens when the flash is positioned too close to the lens. This results in the light reflecting directly back into the lens, thus illuminating the blood vessels.
QUICK TIP: To eliminate this effect all you need to do is change the position of the flash in relation to the lens. By using a flash bracket we can raise the flash thus changing the reflection of the light, eliminating red eye.
