This is Jake, my snake. It was a bitch to photograph him, as he wanted to slither all over the table instead of wrapping nicely around the apple like I would have liked. I took 90 frames and liked this and one other. I liked the pose in the other better, but it was even more out of focus. My main complaint on this one is the shadow over his eye, but what are you gonna do?

Taken on my dining table on a black sheet. Light was chandelier that hangs above my table. PP: Resize, sharpen, up contrast to remove definition in the sheet he was on.

A little more light on the face would have given an extra mark I think

Great design, provocative! The subtlety of the colors adds to the theme.

Eeeuw. Not very appealing to me. Focus and lighting are great, but the color is bland.
