    Im new here as well as being new to photography.

    My main hobby is keeping and breeding Columbian Boa Constrictors. I have recently started taking pictures of them, and came across this forum hoping to better my skills.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum! Unfortunately I hate and am terrified of snakes, therefore I will henceforth have to avoid your posts at all costs... :shock:

    ...welcome to the forum!

    Photographing snakes sounds like fun and i (for one) look forward to the results as you learn

    Once mastered - maybe you could write a tutorial for us and post it in the "How To" forum

    Kewl!

    :)

    here is a link to some of my photos I posted in the photo gallery. I am truly a beginner so please, please be gentle.

    Seriously though... I would greatly appreciate any and all advice you have to offer. I have always thought about getting more into photographer, but I just never took the time to learn.

    Wow! Has it really been over 2 years since I been here... Im such a terrible member.

    I have been so busy building up my snake website that I really havent had a chance to enjoy photography the way I would like. I guess the good thing is now my snake site is in the top 5 largest boa websites in the world, but now I need to get back to a hobby I enjoyed as a teenager (some 15 odd years ago).

    Im looking at upgrading to the d50 model.. Was looking at the rebel XT, but it may be just a little small for my hands. Going to look at them side by side tomorrow to make a final decision.

    Anyway.. Im glad to be back, and I hope to be around alot more now.

    Oh... And dont worry... I wont be posting pictures of only snakes anymore. Although Im sure there will be some.

    Funny to be saying "Welcome" to a member who has been on here almost from the start ... well, definitively for longer than I have, but what the ... you know: nice to see you! You will by now have the odd Boa photo for us to see, won't you? There are a couple more snake lovers on board (and owners, too), so they might really be interested! C'mon, grab that camera of yours and start photographing Boas :) Let's see your beauties!
