I am an eye type of guy, to me the eyes are key to most portraits.

Model: Sarah Jean Stewart

Here is a fairly traditional studio portrait where the model has direct eye contact.

Next we have a shot similar to a National Geographic photo

Model: Jasmine Bowen, Ottawa/Toronto

The blue veil frames the face and in effect draws one into her eyes.

Model: Barb Kent

Again the model is making eye contact with the viewer. Not all portraits need eye contact, but it is a powerful view.
