Human eye is so complex and amazing. No digital camera is as powerful as our eyes. Today let's learn how to photograph an eye with our Galaxy.
1. Your Galaxy Smartphone
2. A model (Friend or Siblings)
3. White plastic bag
4. Secondary phone or Torch

How to click?
Seat your model in comfortable place as they are the key to the shot. In this photograph, I've made the model to lay down flat and have asked to look up. I then turned on flash in my Galaxy S6 and kept it inside a plastic bag (acts like a soft light). I took this lighting setup over the model's eye at a close distance. Then I clicked perpendicular to the lighting which is from the side, to get a perfectly illuminated eye. I used focus lock technique to get this shot (auto mode). You can always use pro mode from your Galaxy with macro focus and fast shutter to make things easier. Later I used spot colour to pop the iris and also increased the saturation to make the iris stand out.
Pro tip: Always click perpendicular to the light source while clicking an eye.
'Make sure not to use very bright light directly over the eye as this might damage the eye'
