I take loads of photos but I think my favorites to take are of the "up close and in your face" type. When I 'm able to take these of human subjects I try to focus on their eyes because the eyes tell the story. When photographing people and animals, everything else can be hidden or cropped out: the mouth, the nose, the hair. But the eyes must be visible. You must try your best to make the eyes as sharp as possible because if the eyes look sharp, the rest of the photo will appear so even if it's not.
