Why do some people appear to have "red eyes" in my photographs?

Question:
Why do some people appear to have "red eyes" in my photographs?

Answer:

Red eye happens on flash pictures when the subject is looking directly at the camera. It is actually a reflection of the flash in the subject's eyes. You can minimize "red eye" in several ways:
1. Move the flash further away from the camera lens. (This will not be possible on the cameras with built in flash.)
2. Make sure that the subject is not looking directly at the camera.
3. Increase the overall lighting in the room.
4. If the camera has a red eye feature, select that setting rather than the standard flash setting.
