"Eyes" Windows to the Soul

May 16, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I have always believed a person's eyes have a story to tell.  They can show a wide range of emotion and tell a story without a single word being spoken.  Eyes have always been a high priority in my portraits and head shots.  In most cases, I want to see a sparkle in your eyes.  To me there is almost nothing worse than a dead or dark eye.  Unless your taking pictures of a zombie.  The next time your looking at someone's picture, pay close attention to the eyes, and see what they tell you.  I'm attaching a link to wikipedia's definition of "catch light".   en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catch_light  I learned about catch light about 20 years ago in a video production class, but I still use the principles today.  Check out the catch light in Bianca's eyes and let me know what her eyes are saying to you.
