I love snakes. Good shot. He is checking out the viewer and I love that.
Cool picture, like the dof.
Welcome to the forum, is that your snake?
Yup that is one of the many. You will be seeing more of them.
Wow nice pic. How do you capture the foreground as clear and the background blurry? I've always wanted to do some shots like that, but can't figure it out for the life of me. I'm using a digital camera if it makes a difference. Something with aperture right?
Fantastic mood, colour, DOF......you've captured something really special here!
Exactly. It is the handiwork of a wide open aperture.
Which camera do you have?
Snakes are great!
But Dragons are even better!
You can also get this effect by using a long lens, correct?
The aperture numbers of a good long lens usually starts at 2.8. I wouldn't know for sure if f2.8 would give you the shallow 'depth of field ' in the above picture.
I would pick a 50mm lens and set the aperture or f number at f1.4 or f1.8 to get this effect.
