Good lighting (maybe a little too much). I am disturbed by the small red eye that I see in the right eye (Am I wrong ?). This is because of the great preciseness of this picture Thumbs Up!. Could you copy the left pupil in the right eye ?

You got it... You get one point more Thumbs Up! You know, the difficult one Smile
I don't thing you can get a better result using flashes. You really need powerfull lightning to have the WYSIWYG feeling...

You've copied the right pupil on the left eye (?). We now have two red-eye (in BW).

Of all your shots of your dad, I think I like this one the best. The newer one just has a bit too much burnout on the forehead and hand, and the gaze is directed away from rather than toward the camera. I like this directness very much, and the contrasts are very beautiful. The unusual darkness of the eyes is very familiar to me. Consider getting one of him smiling - or ask him an odd question and capture his immediate expression. He typically has a rather somber expression. You should keep doing these, fd, I know there's a POW coming for one of these.
