Creating Catch Lights ?

Anyone know of a tutorial for creating catch lights from scratch, without having to beg borrow or steal them from another image ?

Re: Creating Catch Lights ?

Catch lights will depend upon the lighting used at the time of a shoot and the position of the person in shot. I would probably go the begging and borrowing route, or depending upon the image my preference would be to just leave them out.

But no, no tutorial that I know of, other than digital art sort of stuff.

Thanks for replying Mike. As a catch light is a reflection upon a shiny smooth surface, i think i will just experiment with taking different images of reflections. Or just take a closeup of my eyes, trying to get different variations of catch lights, then i can use copy paste! Cheers!

For some reference to different types of catchlight e.g. Square softbox, beauty dish, ring flash, window light you could try a search in Google images only 'catchlight' as search parameter. You should get hundreds, any particular shapes you like you could create and save as a brush maybe?

A PSD containing most of the catchlights from various lighting techniques is located HERE

For a tutorial try "Retouching Eyes Professionally"
