Want a powerful portrait? Make sure you capture their eyes. I can be short on words so I will borrow a few from others...
The eyes sink to the heart to make the art. - Melanie Einzig
"The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The eye speaks with an eloquence and truthfulness surpassing speech. It is the window out of which the winged thoughts often fly unwittingly. It is the tiny magic mirror on whose crystal surface the moods of feeling fitfully play, like the sunlight and shadow on a still stream." Henry Theodore Tuckerman
Once you really commence to see things, then you really commence to feel things. - Edward Steichen
"I have looked into your eyes with my eyes. I have put my heart near your heart.” Pope John XXIII
