The UK importers of Westcott products are introducing an interesting new product for people photography.

It looks interesting as the effect from below eye level reflectors used well can look good, but this one aims to keep a more natural catchlight than established products. It seems a touch expensive but if you use it a lot…

Here is the official  info:

The Westcott Eyelighter is the perfect solution for high contrast reflective lighting. While flat reflectors create unflattering catchlights in the eyes on close-up portraits, the Eyelighter has perfected the light by shaping a reflector in the same curvature as 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 innovative tool not only provides pristine catchlights, but also reflects a stunning, clamshell lighting.

The Eyelighter frame is constructed with a 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. Assembly and tear down are simple, allowing for quick on-location shooting.
