5 Helpful Tips for Sharper Eyes in Portraits

No doubt, it is crucial to get your subjects' eyes in focus in any portrait, but that can be a bit difficult, particularly since a lot of photographers love to shoot at very wide apertures. If that is something you struggle with, this great video will give you five helpful tips for getting sharper eyes in your portraits.

Coming to you from Kayleigh June, this excellent video will show you five tips for getting sharper eyes in photographs. It can be frustrating to miss a lot of shots due to the eyes being out of focus, and I know I certainly have had my share of misses over the years. One of the biggest things that has helped me quite a bit is learning to pay attention to my own body a lot more when I am on a shoot. I unconsciously sway or move quite a bit, and it took me quite a while of wondering why I was missing shots to realize what was going on. And with your depth of field often hovering around just an inch or so at wide apertures, even little movements can throw things off. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
