I like taking pics on my free time. I'm not overly good at it but its still fun every once in a while =D

Here are a few pictures that I've taken of my previous tarantula collection:

Theraphosa blondi 7" female.



5" Grammastola alticeps female


1 1/2" Theraphosa blondi spiderling


Fangs








A few of the LOLCat type pics with spiders instead:

I really enjoyed looking through your photos. I especially liked the landscape ones in your acerage - although it might have been the relief of not looking at spiders anymore!
You do have some great photos there!

Lol I'm glad you like then. Yeah the tarantulas take a while to get used to but their awsome pets =D.

Here are some pics of Orlando's Dixie Stampede after they closed it. I have a few of the horses there when it was still in business if I can dig them up. =/






The other pics lol

I do portrait photography, but not as a paid job as I found I don't have the patience nor the dedication to do it as a career. Maybe someday. I'm a ton better than most "professional" photographers in our area, but compared to pros I see on a couple forums I go to I consider myself crappy. I have no clue how some of the people here get customers.

I don't have the instinct for object photography. When I try to take an object photo, it usually just ends up looking like a snapshot, not a photo. I'm mainly just good with animals and people.

Tons of pictures, sorry.

One more I like. Pictures with this kid are all my son. I have permission to post pictures of the other children with a model release.

Lucara, the close up picture of the banana spider in the web is awesome!! So is the one of the grasshopper. Your close up pictures are VERY clean and crisp! Good job!

What camera and lens do you use?

Thanks!! My favorite thing to do is use Photoshop. If I could get a job just editing photos, that would be a dream come true. lol

Here are a couple pictures of some frogs I found near Sailorville Lake in Des Moines, Iowa a LONG time ago. They were in the blackest mud I have ever seen. They aren't the greatest composition wise, but they turned out pretty sharp and I love their colors. The lower picture shows the mud with the best color. In the first picture I loved the green on him, so I made it a bit more yellow so it would stand out. You can't notice unless they are right next to each other. lol

Thank you! My fiance has photoshop that I'm hoping to take advantage of once I figure out how the heck to use it =/. The altered pics were done through Photobucket and even then the only thing I know how to do is use the boarders lol.

My camera is http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1202650703335

As for the lense, its what ever it came with. I dont know the differences in lenses and I dont know how to adjust anything except the zoom and flash on the camera =/. I know its supposed to take awsome macro pics but I still havnt figured it out .

Glad you like the pics though! I love it when you can just point and shoot and it looks semi-professional =D Its why I love this camera!
