    Lightbox Experiment

    Set up a quicky light box, going to fiddle with images later, but these are unedited.



















    Will post pics once they are fiddled with.

    It worked nicely! The lizard photos turned out the best, more captivating with its expressions. Snakes can be hard to photograph in lightboxes. Most of my friend's balls and boas wanted to explore rather than sit still for 2 minutes. I prefer to use black to bring out more colors, but that's just my preference.

    I like the lizard, photos are a little dark though. Use a brighter bulb or flash setting or bump the iso or slower shutter speed or larger aperture, your choice

    Using a mirror or white piece of paper to bounce light is also useful for eliminating shadows.... If you can spare a hand to hold it that is. LOL.
