Portrait Tip-Bring Your Subject’s Smaller Eye Closer to you

Hi everyone!

I hope you had a fantastic week!

Today’s post is a short one, yet, in my opinion very helpfull.

If you are a portrait photographer, you most likely have noticed that a lot of people have one eye smaller that other, and when they smile, or try to smile it becomes even more obvious.

As any portrait photographer would know, always focus on the eyes, and focus on the eye closer to you.

So, if you bring the person’s “lazy” eye closer to you, it wont be as obvious that, that person has a smaller eye. Fair enough, we could fix the eye in Photoshop, but if you are shooting tethered or you show the back to the camera to your subject, it wont be as obvious, and it will make them feel a lot more confortable with themselves, as there are people that they don’t feel confortable with the “lazy eye”
I hope this short blog post is helpful for you! So now, go out and photograph someone and see for yourself the great results you can achieve.
Have a fantastic Weekend,
