eye contact * new jersey child photographer * mikifoto

the images that grab my attention most are those when the subject looks right into the camera. when their eyes lock into yours. and you can't look away. you don't always need a smile or an overflowing emotion. or even an action. sometimes all it takes is just two big eyes staring your way. not such an easy task when dealing with toddlers and the younger set. my tips for grabbing their attention...tell them their favorite character is inside the lens. ask them if they see the magical butterfly on your head. or if you got mad skills, balance something on your head and they will watch in awe.
