Dear Venomland Members and Friends, Venomland is a little more than 6 years old now and by far the biggest Hot Snake community on the Planet! We want to thank all of you who made Venomland the leading Board. We are also very thankful to our Moderators and Admins for years of hard work. Now, it is time to move on. I have been thinking how to proceed and what to do with our beloved board as we reach a size, that we need to make drastic changes to secure the future of our community. As of now, Venomland is hosted by a free (well mostly free) hosting service. That was good for the first years but now we need to find a new way to run our forum. I have spend hundreds of Dollars over the years to keep Venomland up and running, and i have done so with pleasure. Now, we need your help! We need to come up with several thousand dollars for our Venomland 2.0 project, which i frankly cant pay for any longer by myself. So Venomland is asking his Friends and Members for the first time for their financial Support. Please help to keep Venomland alive, and let us move on to a new, better Portal in the Future! Every Dollar is helping us a great deal. I know, its hard times for everyone, but please spare a few Dollar for our community. If you have only 10 Dollars to spare, we are grateful, if it is more, it would be awesome. We are planning to develop a very new Venomland, with real community functions, a forum like you are already loving it and a real (online) Hot Snake Magazin. Also, there will be download areas for scientific papers, Wallpapers and more. Again folks, we can only do that if you all help. Please send me a Private Message if you want to keep Venomland alive, i will provide you with the details on how to donate Money. For now, we can accept money from creditcards via skrill (please google it, its a free service - account-details will be forwarded to you) and paypal. All the best, and for a (hopefully) nice future of our Board. Mario

Hi Guenter,

A very nice picture of the N.melanoleuca. What was the setting to take the picture? Animal in his enclosure, with open door / window? Or animal outside the enclosure?

You were by at least two I can imagine?

Thanks a lot.

Cheers

Hi Lucas,

No, it was just a quick shot of the specimen in its enclosure, through the glass. Peters glass is always very clean! The feeding shot was done similarily.

I was alone then and the lighting was a strobe with a 60x60cm softbox from the side (You can see the reflection in the eye if You look carefully). When I am shooting in Peters zoo I usually go around with the strobe mounted onto a tripod and the powersupply is a portable device. Very easy to handle and still an acceptable light source. The strobe is triggered by a system flash on the camera (reduced to about 1/8 ).

Regards,
Guenter

Sure You may ask!
It depends on the shot. The wideangle shots (e.g. the Bitis r.) are heavily processed wheras the sputatrix for example is rather little processed.
Next time I'll post both the original and the processed files, to make it more clear.
Thanks!

Adobe Lightroom.
I usually do multiple RAW conversions (Smart Objects in PS).

Thanks Guenter, nice comparison.

I also like the image before processing, it has a nice abstract quality, like a portal with your reflection in the glass etc... Very Happy

Sorry, I'm a little late with my comment, but I LOVE the durissus photo!!! It's simply incredible. I am also very fond of the Bitis photo. Thank you for sharing and keeping me inspired to take my own photos, Guenter!

sorry, Guenter, but for me there´s a little bit to much photoshopping in your pictures Wink
I like the natural way, to take a picture.

No problem Benjamin, in fact in the last one there is no PS except contrast and sharpening ...

I do pictures not photos - for me everything is okay, I do not feel the necessity to do "snake photo journalism" Wink
