Make use of natural light. The best place to take this shot is near a window with plenty of natural light. We also advise you to have your patient sit up on a stool or chair. That manner, you may shift them about until you reach the appropriate angle so that the eye isn't overwhelmed with light reflections.
Use a slow shutter speed. With this photo, we wanted to capture some of the soul that was in Jan's eyes, so we chose a slower shutter speed (think 1/15th of a second) to let in some of the ambient light and give the image more life. A faster shutter speed will result in a brighter image but one that lacks depth. There's no right or wrong here, just what works for each photograph.
Don't focus on one part of the image. It's important that you don't focus on only one part of the image, such as an eye lens or blood vessel. If you do, you won't be able to include everything you want in one frame. Instead, try to keep it balanced by focusing on several different parts of the image so that it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. This goes for both large-scale images and portraits.
Use post-processing software to adjust colors and textures. Once you've taken the picture, it's time to start working on adjustments and enhancements. First, we applied a vignette to soften the edges of the image and make it more appealing.
This is how a camera's eye functions. To perform your experiment, choose a room with a light bulb as the primary source of light (no windows). Alternatively, do your experiment at night in any room. Close your eyes and take a seat. Allow a buddy to switch on and then off the light. The person should sit about two feet away from you. Have them tell you when the light goes on and off. This will help determine how you can use a camera's eye.
Now, have your buddy switch the lights on and off while you open and close your eyes repeatedly. When they finish, ask what happened to you when you closed your eyes. Your friend should be able to tell you if anything bright enough to damage your retina entered your field of vision during your test.
The camera's eye works by blocking out light that might otherwise enter your eye. So, to keep from being damaged by the sun or other sources of bright light, you need to shut your own eyeholes whenever you use a camera's eye.
Also, make sure that your lens is clean because dirt on the surface of the glass could cause damaging reflections from outside sources.
These are just a few tips to help you avoid injury while using a camera's eye.
