IT IS ALL ABOUT THE EYES... EXPECT IT, and DEMAND IT~
January 15, 2014 • Leave a Comment
Regardless of the lighting, props, planning, goals, and emotions... there are essentially only fours 'types' of portrait photos...
Wide brings the tummy, hands, and legs into play... but it is still ALL ABOUT THE EYES & FACE if they are in the frame! Though the iris' don't have to necessarily be seen, the eyes still should look like they ARE THERE (and colorful, if they aren't black or dark brown)!
However, it seems, these days, far too many are far too accepting of less than honestly great images... and too many 'feel' cell phone snap shots are readily acceptable. WHY? Personally, I think it's because facebook, twitter, and the other programs that specialize in 'instant gratification' and sharing have dummyied down the expectations of what is acceptable. Does anyone have any other thoughts or ideas on the topic??

If you have any questions about photography, please feel free to ask. I might not know the answer off the top of my head, but odds are I can either help you find the answer or know someone that knows the answer. After nearly 45 years of playing with hundreds of different cameras, both film and digital, I probably don't know specific 'make and model' info... but I UNDERSTAND PHOTOGRAPHY, and the PRINCIPLES & CONCEPTS of capturing and creating good to great images.
