“The eye, which is the reflector of the external world, is also the mirror of the soul within.” G. Seaver
In portrait photography, the eye is one of the most important features to get right. A great emotional shot has two elements with the eyes, they have to be in-focus and they should have some reflection of the external world. That small reflection of light will give life and personality to any portrait. You’ll notice that portraits that do have the eyes in focus or that little bit of catch-light, are lifeless and flat.
It doesn’t matter what kind of camera the shot was taken with, if the eyes are right, it will most likely be a great shot.
