TOPIC: Casper in the Tub

I got a nikon sb-700 for Christmas and have been trying to learn how to use it to improve my indoor photography.

From 2012:

This was the only half decent shot I got at a high iso and aperture of f/2.8. I, now, realize the shot was over sharpened and over saturated.

This week with my flash set on a stand with a 43" umbrella:

I know I need more work on using a reflector and bouncing the light back into Casper's other eye. I would love any other advice on what I am doing right and what I am doing wrong, as I am always looking to grow as a photographer.

Hey very nice improvement. Good photos. I think you have enough exposure in the eyes to bring them out in lightroom.

When I edit the eye ball I have 3 adjustments
The entire eyeball - add a slight bit of exposure and a slight bit of noise reduction. Also shift the colour if necessary.
The Iris - add clarity, contrast, saturation and exposure to make them pop
The pupil - decrease exposure until they look natural again
