Eyes are called the window to the soul. My most prized connections with subjects in my photos are eye contact. Since I'm shooting them candidly it all happens in the moment.

I'm not a scientist nor do I think scientists have good or right answers necessarily. Suffice it to say these feelings are special and make life more interesting.
