I’m going through some of my portrait work at the moment, trying to put some kind of portfolio together. I’m finding it hard simply because there are so many photos to go through.
I’ve read that in a good portrait shot, the eyes should always be in focus. It’s harder than it looks, especially if like me you insist on trying to catch your subject unawares in order to get a more natural shot. Try getting the eyes of a 6 year old in focus as he hurtles towards you down a hill.
Still my dear boy, I do say that it always helps if your subject actually has their eyes open!
