    Show off your catchlights

    and maybe post how you got them? I shot this the other day, and when I was a kid, I drew and sketch a bit of anime and have always been fond of this style of catchlights. I'd like to see some others and maybe learn how you did them. I used a big octo box with a bee800 on the left as the main light and a smaller octo on a boom on the right with a bee400 as a filler for these.

    Personally I'd be more concerned with how the overall lighting on the subject looked.

    I'll mention, mine were shot using a tiny 24x24" softbox or ~33" umbrella (the first shot was something special). I used the same high tech 3M flag/reflector as Scatterbrain (4th shot).

    I desperately need larger modifiers; soon.

    [click to see larger and better detail on catchlights: IMG_4012_Jenni_BW_V1.jpg photo - Derrel photos at pbase.com ]

    This is one of my Lastolite Umbrella Box units (40 or 43 incher? not sure which one they spec it as), used with a Speedotron M90 flash head inside the box's diffusing screen--the flash head's fairly BIG reflector, about an eight-inch non-removable reflector, causes a round, circular catchlight with a tiny black dot in the center of it. This is kind of a non-typical flash unit to use with an umbrella box, but I personally like the tiny-black-dot, rounded catchlight look.

    Single umbrella using Speedotron Brown Line M11 flash head with a 7-inch "proper" umbrella reflector on the flash



    [you must click on the link to see this in its proper sRGB color..forgot to 'tag' it as sRGB years ago: _MG_2451_As_Shot_1000x.jpg photo - Derrel photos at pbase.com ]

    ECONOMY e-Bay 24 x 24 inch softbox. Obviously this square softbox produces SQUARE catchlights...

    Hey, if we're bringing non-humans into this, then I've got one to throw into the ring. Spiders have feelings too, ya know.
