Jim – an excellent wedding photographer – gave me the best photography tip EVER. When I was in Pennsylvania we had to take the requisite family pictures.
“I’m sorry, but my eyes are always closed in pictures. I try not to blink to no avail.” I apologized in advance.
“Here’s what you do.” Jim replied. “I will count to three and you blink on two. Your eyes will be open in every picture.”
It works! Blink on two. Profound! Have you heard of that?
