I'd be sure that clients knew that was the copyright, not a delivery time :)


Baaa ha...so true. Actually, that was the concetp on my site originally...a play on words, things were 'done' by me, and I shipped on Tuesday, so it all had to be 'done' by then ;) LOL

I think you are on to something. You are using some of the same technique s as those colored contact lenses. They add a dark line over the limbus (the junction between the cornea and the sclera) and several radial lines over the iris to increase the contrast. Burning the limbus does basically the same thing.

However, taking away all the secondary reflections left the eye looking flat. I think you could get away with a single reflection if that reflection is over the pupil. In your case, I would take away both the reflections on the model's right (in both the right and left eyes), but not the dots over the pupils.

Burning a little eye makeup is a great idea too. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work. Its easy to poke a couple of holes, building the tutorial was the tough part.

I agree flat eyes look dialated and flat.
Other then that it's a great improvement.
I would like to see the central highlights from the original pupils. The eye on the left also had one to the left. That one could stay or go.

Your parents ROCK! :-D

Welcome to DPC.


I have to say, they really do LOL...I hated the name as a child (you can imagine why), but now, I truly appreciate that it's unique ;) LOL

Thanks for the welcome...I kind of poked around looking for a place to post 'intros' but couldn't really see anywhere that felt like it was where 'it' is done, so I'm just going to inject myself on conversations and wiggle in :P

"Done By Tuesday" is/was the name of my online shop, UNFORTUNATELY I didn't realize I was going to love photography as much as I do, or I would have started out with just my name, but initially I was only taking pictures of the items I made, and there is the occassional issue of people snatching photos, blah blah blah, I do teeter back and forth with using a different copyright for just 'photos'...my name perhaps, but meh. LOL.

Thanks Terry :D it really is. I'm excited to see what else I can do now LOL :D Especially with the eyes on my kids' pictures! :D

Thanks for the edit too ;)

Welcome to the forums!

Nice work... it's amazing what a big difference a small edit can make!

Okay, this is my first 'forum' post, so howdy ;) LOL

Now. I just found this tutorial this evening and gave it a try on my self portrait for today! The photo has been adjusted (curve mostly) but I didn't do anything specific to the eyes at all. So the 'original' isn't 100% original, if you know what I mean, LOL...but still.

I found the tutorial immensely helpful as I am oh so very new to all this stuff :P

so, here are the shots...

after...subtle difference, but it's the oomph type thing I wanted to learn about :D

Thanks for the tutorial :D

I made her eyes a little bright

Whoa those eyes are intense- borderline creepy actually.
I kinda prefer the original, the eyes are much more natural.

Just my opinion of course, and it is a pretty nifty technique.

EDIT: Hmm maybe it's the cloned highlight in the pupil that's making it seem odd, the pupils ar very large and the highlight balances out all that negative space.

fantastic - really useful tutuorial - thanks for taking the time

Cindi, you wanted to know if we'd used it. Yep - during the 30-day self-portrait challenge on my Emotion Wheel shot. I didn't burn my eyelids, but you told us in that thread about the color mode. In fact, I just used the color mode in my light on white entry, and I never would've known about it without you. :)

I do have a few suggestions for the tutorial.

It's most helpful in each step if literally nothing else changes.

From step 2 to step 3, though, you changed the overall contrast in addition to changing the iris color. And then the contrast returned in step 4.

And from step 4 to 5, it looks like you also dodged the inside of your left eye (image right; anyone ever figured out a good language for describing which side of someone's body you mean when they face the camera?).

I know these sound small, but when you're only talking small changes from step to step anyway, they get distracting. And for people just learning the difference between dodge and burn, seeing two changes at once makes the point less clear.

I hope you know I appreciate your taking the time; you're inspiring me to write one myself. But I also hope you take this as constructive criticism to improve an already-great addition to DPC. :)
