The power in the eyes of a person or animal draws you into a photograph. The stronger the eyes are, the more you will draw attention of the viewer. I do not photograph people that much but do like to emphasis eyes in my non-human subjects. I have done some reading on the subject and have a few ideas on emphasizing the eyes of a subject to create interest and emotion in a picture.
-Focus on the eyes, make sure they are in sharp focus
-Line of sight: use the eyes of a subject to point out something else in the picture or draw your eye outside the frame
-Ask the subject to incline their head so their eyes are on a diagonal
-Catchlights: these are the flickers of light or reflections in the eyes that bring it to life

I am looking forward to your photographs emphasizing eyes. Have fun and as always thanks for participating.
One of my favorite subjects
