It’s All in the Eyes

It’s All in the Eyes

They say “the eyes are the windows to the soul” and “they” would be right. An extraordinary headshot or portrait should portray one’s character and essence and the eyes can tell a lot about one’s being.

Comparison of eye expressions. Which is more effective?

I tend to like to capture the eyes that express meaning and purpose as they represent strength and resilience. Wider eyes tend to express fear while softened eyes express intention.

Wider eyes express fear while softened eyes express purpose.

Whether I shoot headshots or portraits, I generally tell a nervous client or a client who is not sure how to show expression in their face to “soften your eyes” or “smile with your eyes”, depending on the look I’m trying to capture, as it’s the job of your photographer to relax and capture the best version of you.
