    My first attempt at using a home made light box. I think I need add a couple more lights next shoot. Any tips/tricks?

    I am no expert at lighting, but have you tried to place a reflector on the opposite side to the lightbox to open up the shadows a bit?

    Also, I find the depth of field a bit too shallow on the closeups. The eyes are sharp but I would like to see the DOF extending to the tip of he nose.

    Alrighty, i'll have to give that a try. I also agree with you on the dof, i'll work on it. Thank you!

    He's licking his eye, crested geckos dont have eyelids; its how they keep there eyes moist.

    i love cresteds. Great looking animals. I wanted one myself, but i just dont have the room for another terrarium now.
    About the pics: #1 looks a bit soft. And like Steph said, the DOF is a bit shallow on the closeups. I dont know what F-number you shoot with, but when im shooting my bearded dragons i usually got with F14. You probably can use a smaller number, since the head is smaller.
