    I've tried these shots before and I think the first thing they show me (along with waterdrop shots) is that one needs a very different lighting setup to a softbox in a flash - the reflection is sadly very noticeable and very distracting in an otherwise very interesting shot

    I think that the ideal is to try bouncing the flash off something like a very large wall surface, a reflector - anything to try and create a soft, even lighting that won't have a distinctive reflection in the eye

    Ring flash is pretty sweet for iris shots.
