    OK, so... I have these cute little fuzzzy Sugar gliders for about a week... (taking care of them for a while since their owners are out of town.)
    SOOO... how should I photograph them? Any ideas on set-up and background?

    I can't exactly put them on the tree outside(I would never see any of them again)

    I can't think of any ideas, never had the chance to photograph something like this.
    I'll just use my Panasonic Lumix, it has a decent macro. :)

    Thanks in advance!

    i have some friends with sugar gliders, they are soooo fun.

    'should I photograph them?' What kind of a question is that?? :)


    I'd set them on a white sheet in an enclosed area and just photograph them like that. for lights try diffusing lamps or even flashlights with sheets or paper. it always does the trick for me.

    If I knew what a sugar glider was bro, I would be glad to try and help, but I am feeling a bit stupid on this one!! Can't wait to see what you come up with though!

    Since this is a gallery, shouldn't this be in the photographic discussions forum?

    I'm going to post pics of it in here as soon as I get some (I'll be shooting them today) That's why this thread is in here. ;)

    They are small marsupials from Australia.
    They look like this: (random photo off of google)

    NOOOOOO.... man...
    I just realized that my mom went out of town and she took my digital camera with her... :confused:
    I don't have any macro lenses so I'm going to see what I can do with my 50mm... :x

    Ok, well... I took a few pics of one.
    Man, these things will not hold still... I think I got a few good pics.

    I had to use film (I used B&W) so we will have to wait to see the results. :)

    It will probably take a while because I have to actually finish the roll off... and lately I've been lazy with taking photos. :lol:
