Chipmunk and a Word about Eyes (Two Photographs)

ChipmunkTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

I often read that the focus should be on the eyes of the subject, that eyes are the key to any photograph of an animal, be it a chipmunk or a person. This is good advice. Where the eyes lead and what they tell us is equally important. Here we have two photographs and the eyes tell different stories, in one there is curiosity about the observer and in the other, curiosity about the chipmunk’s next endeavor. So while the advice is good, it is often useful to think about and take photographs where the eyes have a story to tell.

  3. Very nice captures of this little fellow. However, the yellow tones in the chipmunk as well as the background are screaming at me! Do you have the capability of adjusting individual colors and shades in your editing software? One other recommendation I would make would be to sharpen at least the head (including the eye) of the subject. That really draws the viewer’s attention to the part of the photo you want them to notice first.
