Photography podcast #54 talks about how to make the eyes sing in a photograph. When we take a photo of a person or something that has eyes, we really need to pay attention to what we are doing. The eyes are normally the most important part of any portrait and they need to be sharp and bright. Through a few basic techniques this podcast tells you what you need to do to get your subject’s eyes to ‘sing’.
