I am a printing machinist by trade and our printing plates are all now digital. My wife was a plate maker and we met within the trade way back when plates were done with film.

Digital is a whole new learning curb, strange things happen with digital, in fact, one of the last jobs that we printed was a real estate brochure (which is what we specialize in, real estate jobs) and one of the guys overlooked the fact that he just printed 25,000 copy's of a house that had a swimming pool with red water instead of blue. :shock:

For todays technology (computers), digital cameras seem like a must. I got the scanner but you lose resolution when you scan a picture in, not to mention since it uses a light some of your colors may come out lighter or darker then the original picture.

This week since I am off of work I will be working on a new rack for hatchlings, hopefully get some pictures posted when I get done with it.

I read online somewhere that digital can't come close to 35 mm resolution (to support what raptor was saying).. but for the non-professional, like myself, it sure makes it easier to take and work with some pretty good shots.. you don't waste film on bad shots, you can get digital photo printers that print lab-quality pics, you can 'photoshop' or adjust pics... they've also got the higher-end SLR digital cameras with interchangable lenses & the like.. but that's a little advanced for me.. I'm still learning the features and capabilities of my Cybershot. (thank goodness for the 'auto' selections on the settings menus) lol. For online sharing, though, seems like a mid-range digital would be a good idea even for a pro.
oh.. nice pics! that's a great enclosure, too..

Very nice Piccy's, your snake sure has a fancy house...with wallpaper too.


Quick note on scanners, always make sure you put the image to the top of the scanner rather than the bottom....the reason for this....the read head on your scanner is fixed at the top, the bit that lights up and travels along your scanner is just a light and a mirror....so the closer to the top the better.

Sorry sometimes the ' IT tech ' head slips on over the ' snake loving ' one....lol


On the subject of taking pictures of your snakes what colour do you find works best for a background....I know a lot of pro photographers use black...but this seems to distort the colours of the snake...??????

Some of the best pictures of snakes that I have seen were done on a dark blue. It didn't look like it took anything from the snake's color and didn't add any shadows that weren't suppose to be there, like you would see on a white surface when using a flash. Not to mention some of the flashback you get from a reflective surface.

Thanks guys. It has taken me many different enclosure adjustments but I think that I have found the perfect blend of substrate, furniture, and yes wallpaper.
