Hi, Lovely images.

I am only an amateur, I do not shoot much portraits, but thanks for the offer on questions.

One I have, many of the photos on the link (and in magazine covers) are with the model looking directly, fixedly on the lens.

Is this for impact, is it to get the personal contact between the model and viewer, for impact and 'connection' when someone looks at a magazine and thus creating a 'connection' between model / image and magazine viewer?

Or is it just a personal choice for the image?


Bingo!!! In almost all cases the model looks in to the lens of the camera to create a connection between the reader and the image. There are some exceptions, but they are rare.
