capture reflected light in a person’s eyes and create a more vivid 
expression.

Catchlight Shooting
 
Position the flash head toward the front and 90° up. When the flash head 
is rotated to the left or right, the catchlight is not very effective.
 
To effectively obtain the catchlight in a person’s eyes, shoot within 
approx. 1.5 m/4.9 ft. from the subject (at ISO 100 with f/2.8).
 
Do not pull up the wide panel with excessive force. Doing so may detach 
the wide panel from the Speedlite.
