Hi,

Could someone please help me with a project I have been asked to do for my Tutor at my day centre.

I've been asked to photograph eyes with the aim to get close up and show detail in the eye. My Tutor reads the eye to advise people on diet and health advice.

I cant seem to get this done properly, there is always too much light coming into the eye hiding the detail needed.

My best attempts have been with a small compact camera but this means putting the lens right into the persons eye, so it seems. see example.

I was thinking to do this in a darkened room, to stop the light from outside coming in then using a bit of bounce flash,

I would like to use my D90 with my 70-210D lens to give me a bit of distance, I also have a SB900 flash, if needed, but I'm not too sure on the settings to use for this or is there another way.

I don't have a macro lens.

All the best
stevie
