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!

Are you asleep?

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:

Credits: ellaellaella

These sunglasses does not hide the eyes! Great portrait!

Eyes are everywhere!

Four eyes for a great photo:

The “Holga” eye!

Credits: reiga

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

Close your eyes!

Funny eye!

Just for fun!

    The New Petzval Lens Through the Seasons

    The New Petzval Lens is not only known for its elegant brass exterior, but most importantly for the swirly bokeh effect it can bring to photographs. It makes a great portrait lens and performs exceptionally when taking photos of subjects against textured or lit backgrounds, day or night. And it does all these, in wet or dry weather; in any season – winter, spring, summer, or fall.
