The Most Amazing Body Part: Eyes


An Italian proverb states: "Eyes are the mirror of the soul". Eyes are wonderful, a great subject for great photos! Enjoy!

After a series dedicated to the most funny body part (feet), and another article dedicated to hands, I propose to you this article with the most beautiful body part: the eyes. This is the last article of a series of three.

Let’s begin with two wonderful “Diana” eyes!

Sometimes a slight blur effect can add a touch of delicacy to this subject:

Other times, you can use the maximum sharpness to show the details of the iris:

These eyes are smiling!

The little white spot in the eyes of this girl is a very important detail: in a room with insufficient light, you can add this effect using a little electric torch:

Some hairs above the eyes add a touch of charm!

Sometimes, you can obtain masterpieces if the model is not looking towards the camera:

In other cases, a direct look into the lens (as in this Fisheye lens) adds a touch of shining pleasantness:

Great use of the square format:

And a great use of the panoramic format:

Some simple decorations make the picture very likeable:

A great contrast between open and closed eyes!

High key tones are indicated for this kind of subject:

Even in this photo taken by profile, the eyes are a very important part of the image:

You can experiment with eyeglasses:

Or make some double exposures:

Or use the eye as a subject for a film swap:

A funny idea:

Another one!

Great skin tones and great contrast to exalt the subject:

These sunglasses does not hide the eyes! Great portrait!

Eyes are everywhere!

Four eyes for a great photo:

The “Holga” eye!

This eye pointed towards the camera made this photo a masterpiece!

    He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.

    His work has been featured in countless magazines and art galleries worldwide and his personal style is distinct but easily recognizable: vivid, dramatic, colorful and eccentric. Lukasz Wierzbowski loves shooting in sunny late afternoons — when golden rays cover everything. His photographs, however, are the result of an amazingly keen eye, able to work wonders in all kinds of scenarios, sunny or otherwise.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
