The Eyelighter 3 allows you to achieve beautiful clamshell lighting with a single light source. But it doesn’t stop there. Its arc-shaped design matches the natural curvature of the human eye, resulting in seamless catchlights without unflattering shapes or gaps. The sparkle is real.
The Eyelighter 3’s framework features a secure quick-lock system with an easy push-and-release button for fast assembly and teardown. Tension rods pull the reflective fabric taut to maximize the light cast.
With the Eyelighter 3, you get 3 high-quality fabric choices for reflecting studio or ambient light. Changing fabrics is a breeze. The reversible white/sunlight fabric stacks on the silver base fabric using hook-and-loop tape.
Silver is the most popular Eyelighter fabric due to the very distinct look it gives. Creates a very specular light. Fills in almost all of the shadows under the chin and nose. Produces a very defined highlight in the eyes.
The white reflective fabric produces a soft, subtle fill. Retains some shadows under the chin and nose to help add dimension to your subject's face. The highlight in the eyes is less dramatic and more natural-looking.
Sunlight fabric creates a very specular light with slightly warmer tones. A mix of both a gold and silver material gives a warm, glowy look to skin tones and catchlight. Great for brown and green eyes since it complements their eye color.
The Eyelighter 3’s tiltable support spine mounts to a standard light stand. Its 74-degree tilting range allows you to control the direction of your light. You can even use it outdoors with natural light!
Photographer Larry Peters and Westcott partnered to create the perfect solution for high-contrast reflective lighting. While flat reflectors create unflattering catchlights in the eyes, the Eyelighter 3 has perfected the light by shaping a reflector in the same curvature as the human eye.
At 6.8 lbs. (3.1 kg), the Eyelighter 3’s strong aluminum frame provides durability without the weight. The curved reflector measures 54.5 x 24.8 x 21.2" (138.4 x 63 x 53.8 cm) fully assembled. It collapses to 33" (85 cm) for storage in the included padded carry case.
