    I saw a thread dealing with eye reflections - the poster referred to them with a neat term, and, I'll be doggoned if I can remember even a part of the term. The poster relied upon light reflected from the eyes - the source was . . . well, any source. In the example, there were reflections from a window - one reflection nicely positioned on each eye.

    The term gave the impression that this technique would liven up the portrait.

    I know what I want to do - just cannot remember what it was called.

    Can any refresh my memory?

    Thanks.

    I've done a few with my horse shots. It can work if you have the right colors reflecting.

    Suggest you start with sunglasses and get the feel of it all.
