Taking Pictures Without Flash to Avoid Closed Eyes

closed eyes

Some photo subjects can’t take the pre-flash burst of light that’s intended to eliminate red eye in photos – babies and pets, for instance – and they always end up with closed eyes in their photos.

CNET has a useful answer to this in their “Ask the Editor Q&A“. Mary Lojkine says you can first try to turn off the camera’s red eye reduction mode for the flash. If that doesn’t help, she says, you need to find a camera that can take photos in low light situations without using flash, and there are two options here.

The first option is to use a camera with image stabilization; the second one is to find a camera with higher ISO settings. Read the full Q&A here.
