The Eyes have it

Where do you focus?
The face?
The forehead?
The eyes?

Try focusing on the line between the colour and the white of the eyes. And always focus on the near-side eye to optimise depth of field. If you can, make sure the near-side eye is also the dominate eye i.e. the larger one

That's just for starters.

And don't click until you get a great 'eye-meet'. A flirty, soulful, in-your-face, genuine eye-meet. If I could put one new feature on a camera it would be a shutter that wouldn't fire unless you've got an eye-meet.

Create the intensity, the emotion, the feel. You need to be so confident with your camera that you hardly ever look at it.
