20 Great Close-up Photos of Eyes

May 14, 2010 · 73 comments

in Inspiration

When we look at a photo of a face, the first thing we notice are usually the eyes. Eyes themselves make a powerful subject and can say a lot about the person and emotion.

Here are 20 beautifully taken photos that only focus on the eyes. We have a variety of eyes that are striking, quirky, dreamy, expressive and dark. This post is definitely not for those with Ommetaphobia (fear of eyes).

Thanks to our reader Matthew from Up With People for this suggestion.

    With close-up photography, best to grab yourself a macro lens, a standard 1:1 is fine with a range of 50-70mm. If you just have a point-and-shoot, make sure you have the macro setting on and have plenty of light too. Hope this helps!

    Awesome eyes !!!

    You could get it the similar result by using of 18-55mm lens just close enough to your eye, before that but sure your light is indirect, to be ambient light in this way will avoid any reflection in the eye :)
