Flycatcher – and a note about eyes (Two Photographs)

The admonition to focus on the subject’s eyes, for people and animals is a good one. Ideally we also want a catch light in the eyes. You can create catch lights but do so with care as they have to correspond to the rest of the lighting. You can brighten the eyes (also controversial) but easier to do. I have done it here, hopefully modestly. There are two reasons for this. Our focus is almost always drawn to the eyes of other animals and to the brightest spot in a photograph, if the eyes are generally good and bright, the viewer’s focus should be where we want it to be.
