Red Eye

The appearance of glowing red eyes can ruin a portrait of even the cutest child or pet. The red colour comes from light reflecting off of the retinas in our eyes. The following quick tips can help get the red out.
No Flash
Try not to use a flash if possible it is the number one cause of red-eye. Try turning on the lights or open the curtains to add additional light to your scene.
Look Away From The Light
Ask your subject to look toward the camera but not directly at the lens, another solution is to ask them to briefly look into a bright light first.
Use The Red-Eye Reduction Setting
Take advantage of in-camera red-eye removal. Many digital cameras and photo printers now allow you to remove red-eye or prevent it altogether. Check your digital camera’s manual to see if it includes these features.
