    okay here goes:

    1) find someone with big eyes (not kidding..you notice the baby in your 1st shot has smaller eyes and there are hardly any "whites" to show!)
    2) find a large light source and get their face into it! all eyes will look dingy when the subject is back lit or poorly lit.
    3) use single focus point on the eye itself when shooting a subject.
    3) clean it up in post processing

    You can do it with your lens fyi.
