    A friend of mine has a substantial collection of pet/breeder snakes that he would like photographs of the most important consideration in doing this is getting relatively accurate color as he will be breeding a variety of morphs (different than average color snakes) that he would like to be able to show off on certain reptile forums and possible sale ads on said forums. What kind of continuous lighting setup would give the best results (If I shoot in raw how much does it actually matter?) as far as color? Could it be worth it to invest in a flash setup? Preliminary results using home CFLs seem to indicate that even shooting in raw the color rendition might not be as accurate as it could be.

    P.S. Any tips on photographing snakes would be greatly appreciated.

    In RAW you should be able to adjust the color saturation better and, adjust the White Balance. Depending on what program you are using. Never used CFLs so I cant tell you. Having a flash would benefit you either way.
