    My wife is a blinker. I had a choice: new wife or stop trying to photograph her. I chose one of those options.

    There are a number of practical solutions. You can sew or staple her eyelids open, or run a bead of superglue along the top of her eyelids to keep her from blinking. You can also duct-tape her eyes open, but you'll have to photoshop the duct-tape out...

    My father in law is a blinker; to a lesser degree, so is my wife. A technique that works often, but not always, is to count aloud "1, 2" and release the shutter on "2". People expect the shutter release on "3" and the blink reflex in the exposure is sometimes avoided. A variation on this is to count to 3, pause while the blinkers blink, then release the shutter on the unverbalized "4".

    ken beat me to the fix lol

    -basically -select (I use lasso) -> apply feather or refine edge (guessing ken used maybe 3 or 4 feather since file was small) ->adjust levels or curves to darken and add some local contrast -> bob's your uncle !
    notch codes ? where we're going, we don't need notch codes.

    In Photoshop, there are often many ways to accomplish something. I used the Burn tool.

    In the options bar, select shadows. Choose a small % and slowly darken the areas inside the eyes.

    There are many Photoshop tutorials on the web and in books
