Thanks!

Excuse my brief absence, had to do some schoolwork.

I was playing around with an ipad app called softbox pro, and the photos turned out sorta well. A bit of a takeaway from my usual style but I don't mind them.

D. adelae:

Image

D. capensis "narrow":

Image

D. paradoxa:

Image

N. veitchii:

Image

I really think my photography is improving bit by bit, I keep finding new features on the camera though...

Constructive criticisms are appreciated!

So are those pictures taken by an iPad? The photo quality doesn't look so great as taken with an SLR but I'm liking the hazy/cloudy background Toni the pics! My favourite must be the rim of the nep! :)

Not taken with an Ipad. I used an app called softboxpro that produces lighting on the Ipad's screen. That is how I got the backlighting. I used my DSLR to take the photos.

Heres the app:

I was taking some pullings from it, and the muscilage is really thick! Very hard to pull the leaves off.

PC died and so I am a mac user now, so these are edited on iPhoto. Still learning the program so they look a bit weird.

Alas, any tips from iPhoto users would be appreciated!

U. reniformis bladder:

Image

Schizzy:

Image

Some ping hybrid, can't remember what:

Image

D. pygmaea "green" from gemmae:

Image

Itty bitty ceph:

Image

S. adnatum update:

Image

D. madagascarensis coming back from the roots:

Image

D. capensis "red", this one turned out kind of odd:

Image

Sarracenia minor:

Image

D. binata multifida extrema:

Image

I retook the Ceph photo:

Thanks for looking!

Sorry! I'm a PC user so I really can't help you on this question. :(

Your photography skills are very good and my favourite pics must be the cap 'red' and the multifida! Thanks for sharing! :D

Instead of asking everybody to post pictures of their VFTs, just click HERE its a great website and I think it will stop people from getting annoyed a bit! ;)
