What causes red eyes in photos?

The “red-eye effect” in photos, is caused by light reflecting off of the retina, especially when a flash is used in dim lighting. People who generally have large pupils, in dim light, tend to experience “the red eye effect” with photos. The red color is due to the rich blood supply of one of the layers of the retina called the choroid. Here are some tips for reducing the red-eye effect in photos: 1. Use the Red Eye Reduction setting on a camera: This gives a little pre-flash before the actual photo is taken, to give time for the pupil to constrict. 2. Add brighter lighting in the room: This will also help to reduce the pupil size. 3. Have your objects look slightly off center from the camera. 4. Take the picture without the flash. 5. Edit the photo afterwards.
