Photoshop Lesson 5 -Create Detailed Eyes

Photoshop Lesson 5 - Create Detailed Eyes

In this lesson I will show you how to sharpen the eyes in any portrait with just a few simple steps.

I'll show you how to give the eyes more detail and depth so they stand out and draw the viewers eyes into the subject.

What are catch lights?
The catch lights are another important part of the eyes make up and there's a simple way to have these placed perfectly.

These are the reflections created from the light source in the eyes. If you are using one softbox or an umbrella you will see only one catch light in each eye. If you use two lights you will see two catch lights. The shape of the light is also shown in the reflection as well.

Check out Lesson 5 to give your portraits eyes that detail that they deserve.
