I shot this photo with my sony dsc-p32. There's glass between us. So I was trying to keep my camera close to the glass to cut down on the reflection between us.

My program settings were:
-0.3EV, MultiAF, indoor setting for white balance
iso 100, with no flash.

My lighting was just a 60 watt incadescent heat lamp above the tank.

Any tips for camera settings? :|

That's good idea... Wish I had remembered about it when I took the shot, lol. :P

Multi-AF isn't helping either...try setting the camera for a single AF point & focus on the snakes eye.

Nice shot. Unfortunately for me I am limited on my cameras abilities right now... I'm dying for something a wider range of configurations, and the ability to filter. Sooner the better. :roll:

Took this one today. iso 200, centerAF, focused on the eye area, -0.3ev, heat lamp lighting.

I always have willing subjects, my turtles tend to get excited when its picture time. :-)
