The H-EyE-Lighter Curved Reflector from FlashGear.net
The H-EyE-Lighter Curved Reflector from FlashGear.net is a simple solution to a lighting problem. A common technique for achieving a glamorous portrait is lighting the subject on-axis from above to bring out the modeling of the face and details in the hair, makeup, etc. But what to do about the hard shadows under the nose and around the eyes other than add additional lights to complicate the subject? The H-EyE-Lighter’s 58.5″ wide modifier has an open “U” shape which forms an arc that surrounds the subject, over which reflective silver material is tightly stretched for a consistent effect.
An included bracket allows you to tilt the reflector to the ideal angle to bounce light from the main source to slightly flatten the contrast, while maintaining a three-dimensional look, and remove the shadows to your desired degree without adding another source. The H-EyE-Lighter’s name is derived from its natural-looking H-EyE-Lights that follow the contour of the subject eyes, and because of its shape, is an unbroken arc without the gaps seen when using multiple reflectors. The H-EyE-Lighter can be used with any light source, be it a tungsten, LED, or flash fixture, or even outdoors with the sun. The H-EyE-Lighter sets up and breaks down in minutes for storage and transport in its included case. Unlike other brands that offer something similar, the H-EyE-Lighter comes with 3 reflector options with no need to purchase them separately. Soft White, Soft Silver and Sunny Gold are all included from the start.
