Stranger 12: glossy eyes
I asked this girl for her picture while showing my 100-strangers project album on my Facebook page. She liked it and so I had her stand against where Towering Beauty was.
Stranger 12th has well-defined eyes that are attractive. I love how her irises shimmer here. But then again, like Charming Sparklers and Stunning Portlander, I don’t think she looked straight at me.
Lesson learned: Don’t get lost in the subject’s eyes. Pay attention to the entire face as well as how the head is positioned. No to chin-up.
You as the photographer can see what your models can’t see so you should so act as the director. For headshots, like this, advise them to look straight into your lens and as much as possible, eye-level with your camera. If they are taller than you, tell them to turn their heads down a little.
So, I didn’t do any more exposure and light adjustments here because these will possibly draw attention away from those gorgeous glossy eyes. I applied 50% blurring to some areas of her face to make the eyes pop beautifully even more.
