Posing the Eyes
So where should you look?
Where you look can dramatically change the feel of the portrait. As you can see in this example, I had the bride look down, slightly below her husband’s nose, as if they’re about to kiss and she’s imagining it. It creates some electricity in the portrait.
Make sure you focus intensely. Why? When you focus on something very hard, it triggers the Parietal Lobe in the brain. This brings out a VERY captivating look in the eyes.
