    The pictures look pretty good. Just a suggestion, but I would recommend experimenting with the background, what colors really bring out the best in your subject contrast-wise. For example, the crested gecko pictures - the first one does nothing to bring out his color, but the 2nd one, against the green of the plant makes his colors pop so much more.

    Those are some pretty extreme/vivid color markings for bearded dragons. If you get bored again, definitely look into finding contrasting backgrounds and play with some lighting angles. The last one is my fav, but I keep imagining all the possibilities for making the beardie stand out like a super star!

    The only thing I would say is put them by a window where the sun can bring out their real colors even better. Nothing like natural lighting :) Also take tons and the you have more of a choice

    Take bedding like flat sheets, pillow cases, even table clothes or any upholstered item in the house and make it a background, or set them up infront of a window in either midday sun or afternoon sun and see how insanely bright it makes their colors. Morning sun is usually too bright and causes a white out effect color wise. Also, if you have a reading lamp that allows the light to adjust direction, just shift it around to adjust how the light is on them. Playing with lights and finding different colors (usually complimentary colors) can make all the difference in photography and making their features stand out.

    Like the pictures Rich does? with the drapery/background?? what color should i use to do that?

    Yup yup! just experiment with different colors. Lights and darks contrast, usually helping the lighter color pop, while mixing lighter colors can tend to drown out other lighter colors. Same thing for dark on dark.

    hmmmmmm..... soooooooo if i get a background, put a rock and put the lizard on the rock, then take pictures? or place the lizard on the background?

    you can do anything you want. Using a rock would be a bit more comfortable to the lizard. but photography is about creativity! Use your imagination and have fun with it.
