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 all,

I have asked a few times what i use

Its a Nikon d300 with a sigma 105mm dg 1:1 macro, with 3 sb800 speedlights on a Bogen twin flash bracket.
images are taken between f22 and f40, at iso of 100 or 200, at 250 of sec shutter, in raw+jpeg.....I do not use Photo shop. Almost all are taken in manual focus, I prefer it to auto and I have better control over the focal point and in low light

for some venomous I want a larger working distance so I use a 70 300 telemacro by tamron this gives a distance of about 3 ft....much safer than 4 inches with the sigma

Here is couple of an average results

Crinia tinnula, this is a small species total length of about 20mm

Feeding shot of a Pogona vitticeps

Tongue shot of a young Colletts

Male Acanthophis hawkei from the Barkly tableland

A juvenile Demansia simplex from near Katherine

Thanks for sharing that, Scott. Useful info. I have not seen that flash bracket before, are they easily obtained? And how do you compensate for the three flashes? Is this more a case of trial and error/experience, or does your camera have a function to cater for this?

By the way, as an addict of acanthophis, and an owner of Barkly adders, I appreciated that shot the most. My bias is showing.

Great shots! I love the Acanthophis hawkei most. Beautiful snake. Does the makro tele help to increase the depth of field?
