Whether you’ve been photographing for a few months or years, one thing is certain. Your images are unique. They are from your perspective, your view on the subject. Your work is personal. The journey as an artist continues to evolve. Over the course of time, friends, family and acquaintances enjoy seeing your work. Since we live in the digital, social media and web-based world, sharing your work starts here versus just sending via an email or printing for the family album. We’ve all been effectively conditioned to seek, learn and view electronically from our computers and mobile devices. The days of using cloth and leather bound albums are no longer the norm.

All photographers have their own way of doing things. The workflow differs, but it is essentially the same thing. But since we are all human, we often forget or overlook certain things. This article might overlook something as well, but I will try to point everything out.
A good portrait draws the viewer in to the subject, creating a connection between the two. It should provoke thought and intrigue, making you wonder what the subject is thinking at the time the shot was taken. If there is one part of the face that can communicate this the most, it is the eyes. Beautiful, sharply focused eyes grab your attention and hold it there, they can make or break a portrait, but there is an art to getting pin sharp eyes, a lot of it in the technique used to take the shot, some of it in the post-production. Let’s take a look at what we can do to get those eyes sharp.
I don’t have one photo to look back on as the catalyst. There were many. Bought my first SLR — a Minolta SRT101 — in 1968 or ’69, probably. Maybe 1970. I was a college student, studying journalism. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, these were inspirations, as were people more on the art end of the […]

I love these because they didn’t know I was about to take a picture. I caught them being completely themselves.

That’s why […]
