Very nice shots !
I'm also doing a collection of eyes, but I have a problem with my strobe being reflected in the eyes. I have tried to position my strobes in many diferent ways. I can minimize the reflection, but I can't completely get rid of it.
Do you have the same problem ?

Eyes Underwater sounds like a great idea for a collection and it looks like you've got some nice shots. Look forward to seeing more.

sorry been away a bit.. Yep, the strobe reflection can be a pain but i find there are a few ways to get round it, though they don't always work. Try Edge lighting the subject (the way Martin Edge describes it (and just a coincidence of naming!)) Basically you have your strobes turned almost back towards you so it is just the outer edge of the strobe that is lighting your subject (also works great for getting dark background shots too). Oddly enough i also find when trying to shoot some fish's eyes up close, especially with fish like the crocodile fish i actually find making sure the strobes are pointed straight at the subject means i get less diffracting of the light on the eye itself, quite often it almost looks like there is a multi-coloured finger print across the centre of the eye if i try to cross light it.

I am a long way from being an expert and there are some great photographers on here that can tell you much better ways of doing it, all i would say is just keep on experimenting till you find something that works best but you will definitely need different methods depending on the type of eye.

Viz is really pants at the mo, but hopefully will have some more soon, will post some more if i get them, always good to get feedback on them. Thanks for the positive feedback so far!
