Today's Photography Tip is quite a short one, I hope you are finding them all useful, we will have a re-cap at the end and then you can see what comes next.

 

Tip Number 6 - Focus On The Eyes

When we are looking at a photograph with an animal or person as the main subject, we are always drawn towards the eyes, as eyes are a natural focal point that we connect with.

Therefore when taking portrait photographs at any aperture, make sure you focus on the eyes and that they are pin sharp. As long as the eyes are in focus, both you and your subject are more likely to consider the picture to be properly shot.

As a viewer of an image we look to the eyes and then our own eyes will move around the image to look at other details, but if the eyes aren't sharp we will be distracted and may not even bother to continue looking at the rest of the image.

So Keep The Focus On The Eyes Sharp ;-)

I will add another quick tip at this point - make sure your lens is clean and always have a lens cloth to hand , whether you have a point and shoot, phone camera or DSLR there's no faster way to ruin a photo than a dirty mark on your lens.
