    How do I take good eye pictures?

    I have seen many pictures on here and the web of lovely sharp bright colourful eyes, some of these pictures appear to be in studios and some just as shots around the house of kids or friends.

    How do I achive these sharp bright colourful eyes?

    Thank you
    In April 2008 I bought my first DSLR - a Canon 30d with the canon 50mm F1.8 and the Sigma 70-300 F4-5.6 APO DG Macro, and 430ex II flash.

    yea, im curious as to what tips anyone has to offer..
    I just tried to take a few with crappy lighting.
    its tricky to focus just where you want when you are shooting your own eye.
    i just need to try harder

    Assuming you light well, the photo will boil down to the kind of catchlights in the eyes. A ring flash will make a donut shape. A beauty dish will make a bright circle. Larger modifiers will appear just like their shape.

    Pick a lens with a shorter minimum focusing distance and get in close. Depending on your aperture choice, you'll see different amounts of blurring on eyelashes. Alternatively, you could shoot a little further away and crop, but you'll obviously reduce image size/quality.
    The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist.

    Thank you I assume they are tips for a close up?

    What about a portrait distance?
