Making Eyes "Pop"

I have noticed a trend in portrait photography over the past few years of making eyes "pop" or sharper than what an original photo depicts. I decided to learn this technique since I recently took some great photos of C.M. and his eyes are a gorgeous green that deserve to shine.

I watched this video to learn one method of applying this technique to photos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LIJFmIT9oM



What I love is that the color of his eyes are now more vibrant and you can see the subtle variations in color. This will be a technique that I will be applying to shots like this in the future, they just look great!


  1. Hi! We met on the etsy chat tonight critiquing shops. I found your facebook and blog through etsy. Thought I'd pop in and tell you that I have a meme called the Weekly Shop Hop on my blog, where you can link up your shop for advertisement.

    Catch you around Etsy!
