Black Gaffers Tape Cures Black Eyes

gaffers tape eye reflections thetapeworks.comWell, not exactly, but close.

Photographer Nick Fancher has a method for using the reflective properties of black and white gaffers tape to change the highlights in the eyes of a photo subject. His technique is for what is called “catch light”, which is what you see reflected in the pupils of someone in a photograph.

The tape is applied to a board (white tape on black board-black tape on white board)  and reflected into the subjects eyes to generate abstract catch light patterns.
