Featuring a durable aluminum frame and highly-reflective silver surface, the Eyelighter produces a pristine reflection and a beautiful catchlight for professional portraiture. Now, portrait photographers can obtain clamshell lighting with a natural looking reflection. The Eyelighter is the Triflector, reinvented.
After opening his first family-operated photography studio in 1974, Ohio-based photographer Larry Peters became a leading professional in the senior portrait industry. Larry sought to perfect the art of portrait lighting by designing the patented Eyelighter.
Larry shared his knowledge in workshops and seminars throughout his career, leading to high exposure and demand for his unique reflector. After years of building the product in his garage, Larry partnered with us in 2014. Together we perfected the Eyelighter and made it readily available for photographers around the world.
This arc-shaped reflector was inspired by the unique curvature of the human eye. Specifically designed for beauty and portrait photography, The Eyelighter reflects an arched light toward your subject, leaving a catchlight that follows the natural curve of the iris. Unlike triflectors, this catchlight is seamless, without unflattering gaps. This detailed reflection unique to the Eyelighter and is obtainable without handheld reflectors or multiple light setups.
The Eyelighter frame is constructed with strong aluminum allowing for lightweight durability. In true Westcott fashion, only the finest reflective fabric is incorporated in this reflector. Tension rods are utilized to pull this material taut, maximizing the light casted.
The Eyelighter collapses down to only 36” and quickly stores in the included carry case for travel to on-location shoots and storage.
“I shoot a lot of portraits and beauty work and the Eyelighter gives me the ultimate reflector on a stand for creative catch lights and in most cases only having to use one light to get fantastic results.”
Terry White, Top Pro Elite Photographer
“For video production and stills it has many great qualities. Gets rid of the bags under the eyes and makes them pop. One of the few reflectors that actually comes up on the sides of the eyes to brighten them. This product is basically an instant retouch of the eyes without ever having to use an editing program.”
James Schmelzer, Top Pro Elite Photographer
“Awesome studio tool for bringing beauty lighting and the eyes into captivating light. This is a tool I use daily.”
Lou Freeman, Eyelighter
“In photography we are always looking for products that make our jobs easier. The eyelighter from Westcott does exactly that. Typically used for women, I love that it easily takes of 10 lbs and 10 years with no retouching. It is a soft flattering way to light and provides an almost ethereal look to the finished portraits.”
Sandy Puc, Top Pro Photographer
