    Benurmanii's Pics 'N Stuffs

    Finally. I never take the time to get nice photos of my plants that I feel are presentable enough to make the effort of putting them on the forums. However, I took a few nice photos today (for Instagram with my not-so-good phone camera) while I was renovating my highland terrarium so I feel like it's a good time to start this thread. If I ever take the time to take photos with my Dad's nice camera they are definitely going to end up on here!

    My N. ceciliae that I received on Friday


    N. macfarlanei, always reliable leaf jumps on this one


    N. peltata, love how the leaves start out red and then turn green. Unfortunately the lighting is off in this photo.


    N. spathulata x singalana


    N. sanguinea freshly opened pitcher. I've noticed the peristome always looks at its best when freshly opened. While the striping does not look as sharp with age, the pitchers darken up a bit.

    Hmm, pictures did not turn out as good as I hoped. I will make sure to get some sharper photos in the near future!

    They look good to me. Mine never match the image I had in my mind's eye either.

    Does anything that anyone does come up as it was pictured in the mind? Nice photos too.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    I just don't like the low resolution on the photos. I didn't take any pictures of my Drosera since I find it irritating when you can't see the individual shining dew drops. Now that I've started this thread, however, I find myself wanting to get some really good shots with my real camera!

    Some pics I took with a fancy camera. Still figuring out how to adjust the colors on it properly, and the zoom lens.

    D. adalae


    D. venusta


    N. "Luna"


    D. latifolia


    U. humboldtii


    N. spathulata x singalana

    You'll need some sort of photo processing software to adjust the colors if the camera isn't setting the white balance correctly. It's a common problem with artificial lighting since the spectrum is pretty abnormal. That skinny Nep is looking good!

    Canon Rebel XS. I do not have a macro lens so I had to cope a bit.
