In this tutorial, follow along during a photoshoot where Aaron Nace’s head gets black liquid poured on. Aaron then takes the image into Photoshop for finishing touches to get the proper lighting to black out his own eyes.
The key to making a black eye ball look believable in Photoshop is lighting. Be sure your subject is facing a large window or other lighting source that will create light reflections in their eyes. If there is no reflection in the person’s eye, the effect will look flat and life-less.
