Photo prompt Foto Rx 52 :: Eye Contact

Photo by Valeria Spring edited with Foto Rx B+W Fine Art actions

Our prompt this week for our Foto Rx 52 is ‘eye contact’. With most photos of individuals we like the capture to feel organic (fly on the wall), but there is something to be said about creating that intimate connection with the subject. This is more challenging than it may seem. Photographer Val Spring (the featured image), has mastered the art of the connection. We hope you give it a try so you can too! We have included inspiration + resources below to help you achieve this. Of course the best way to master a skill is to practice, practice and more practice.

It’s not too late to start your Foto Rx 52, shooting consistently will be the fastest way to becoming a better photographer. Follow us on Instagram for more inspo and edit examples. Shoot this week’s prompt and use #fotorx52 so we can find you and cheer you on (also feel free to borrow our hashtags so other people can find you!).
