060|365 The Ring ~ Off Day

Theme: Off Day

I was trying to get one of those cliche, close up intensely detailed eye-shots. Perhaps it was the three cheap magnification filters I had screwed on to the end of my lens, I just wasn't getting anything crisp -- or maybe my eyes really are that dull, hazy and dirty.

Lighting was also a pain. I find when the flash comes from the side you get really excellent luminescence but I couldn't avoid nasty hot spots. Finally I just gave up and settled on this. Anyone know a good way to light an eyeball?
