I have a baby boy with beautiful brown eyes and been trying to take pictures of his pupils (It's very hard!!) Always the images in prints came out from a lab end up too dark and subtle hues in his iris never be recorded properly. Is there any tips to get through with this problem? I wonder which light setting (windowlit, sidelit, multiple artificial lishts, etc.) is the best.... Thanks

What situations have you used so far that were unsuccesful? Also what camera are you using?

My guess would be multiple artificial lights.

Are you just taking close up photos of his eyes? If so, the problem may be the white around the pupil influencing the auto processing machine of the lab to make the brown pupil darker. You would need to have the photo manually printed. If it's a full face shot using window light should be succesful, especially on a bright, but overcast day.
