The Most Amazing Body Part: Eyes

2012-08-14 160

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!

Credits: reiga

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

Close your eyes!

Funny eye!

Just for fun!

Cute little eyes!

    Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
