No More Pictures With Closed Eyes

No More Pictures With Closed Eyes

by Ronald McFarland
(Liverpool, United Kingdom)

Whenever I took pictures of groups of people or even individual protraits, one of the main problems I encountered was the subjects having their eyes closed.

I found it to happen more outdoors on sunny or bright days, where the subject had the sun in their eyes or they were squinting.

The way I got around this problem was to get the subjects to close their eyes.

I then composed the shot, got my camera ready and counted to three. After the count, the subjects then opened their eyes and I took the shot.

This technique allowed me to take the photo and everyone had their eyes fully open at the second I took the shot.
