Their Eyes Have a Story - [Sarasota Children's Photographer]
As photographers, we all have our own style when we photograph people. That's the fun part: each photographer sees the world differently, has different ideas and unique creativity. As we put our eye up to the camera and click, we have a whole world of influence/experience that shapes our end result.
I've finally come to terms with the fact that I want my subjects to look at my camera. I am not a true lifestyle photographer (where one captures the interaction between subjects in a non-obtrusive, beautiful way). I need to see my subject's eyes. When I can connect directly and powerfully, it seems to be a small glimpse into their soul.
So yes, I am going to encourage you to look at me. I want to see your eyes. I want to tell your story. I want you to interact and respond to those who may be with you at the shoot, but it is most important for me to capture the soul-peering moments.
