The eyes have it. I don’t know if I’ll ever figure out what being a photographer is all about. There are at least a million options for taking an image of a person, when combining light, angle, equipment, lens, aperture, Kelvin, oh the list goes on.
It seems to me the safest bet when photographing others, is to focus on the eyes, to let them be bright and alive, and not to allow distractions to provide static.
Then, I guess, the options are much more in the grasp of someone as modestly talented as I am, because getting the eye right makes any image come alive.
