I have a couple of life-size artificial mannequin-grade eyeballs (made of plastic, not glass) which when trying to photograph, which suffer from pinpoints of light showing on them, similar to the light source I am using to illuminate them. Unfortunately, this light source impacts on the iris, rather than the white surrounding the iris. In the project I am undertaking, I'm only actually going to be using one eyeball and want the iris to also face directly towards the camera, rather than 'looking' to one side, as shown below. The fact that eyeballs are circular/curved surfaces makes photographing them more difficult and employing a polarizer on the camera lens, doesn't solve the problem. I've heard of employing polariser(s) over the light source and maybe also still using one on the lens as well, indeed going to solve the problem I am having, or do I need to use some other form of very widely spread/diffused light source, or another method that hasn't as yet occurred to me? Below is a photo so people can see the problem I'm getting. I would be able to photograph this at a longer distance away to increase the amount of DOF, because I want as much detail of the work undertaken on these, which is of pretty exceptional quality and far greater than the image attached would indicate they possess. It's also just occurred to me that I might be able to apply a removable non-reflective coating over the eyeball, but what that substance would need to be, I have no idea at all! I'm guessing that there IS a way of photographing this item, but how, is another matter! Sam.
