    These photos were taken in my homemade light box with one overhead light, using my D3000 with an 18-55 lens.

    The white balance was corrected and I smoothed out the background. I still use Photoshop 7 and have very limited skills with it...

    Comments and critique are welcome.

    I do have many more. Just don't want to make the post too crowded.

    Future photos will be taken with more lights to eliminate shadows.

    Care to explain to a complete Noob what you mean?

    Making people want to buy a Gecko is the point. These are of my collection, but are for use on my website.

    S'all good, I'm not a pro either. : )

    See how only like, the gecko's head is clear? Now, when I see an image with that gecko, I don't see it all not blurry, but a little more of the gecko's body less blurry than just the head.

    Hope that was a good explanation, haha :confused:

    You mean like this:

    or this:

    With the distance and equipment used, that is about as good as I have gotten. When I get a a close up lens or a light box that will prevent escapes, I will be able to get better shots. For now, "inventory" body shots and face closeups will have to do.

    For example, if I was placing this gecko on my site for sale, I would use these two photos:
