Hey guys, haven't been on here in a while.

This guy's photography amazes me. Check out his portrait section:


Does anyone know any techniques to get eyes to pop like he does in those celebrity portraits? They just amaze me. The eyes of the subjects stand out so much... and I know a lot of it is just experience and talent but does anyone know any techniques for how I could get close to that effect with the eyes specifically?

Thanks guys. This forum always helps me out tons with my work.

Focus on the eyes and shoot with a small DOF and selectively sharpen the picture in post to emphasize the eyes? I can't really see that there should be that much more too it. The rest comes down to, as you suggested, experience & talent.
