    I know that I have at my disposal about 10 flashes, 4 studio lights, a background stand with black, white, blue and green and any number on great lenses (it helps to have great photog friends).

    All I have to do is feed them chinese food and I have them all at my disposal. I may even have a girl bringing a corn snakewith her. I'm going to have to turn up the heat to keep all of these herps happy.

    Tentatively we're going to set up and shoot March 8th and see what we get.

    Personally I think the black background would be good.
    Really emphasize the animals without the overpowering brightness of the white.

    sometimes a neutral gray, although sounding boring, brings out the best of the subject as well.

    I'm not planning on doing the same color every month, I'm going to look for variety and see what colors best fit the animals.
    I've got 6 months worth on animals lined up to be shot on March 8th so we'll just have to see what my friends and I can come up with.

    I didn't read all 6 pages before this, but I would also like a herp calendar, with just the animals, either in the wild or on some neutral background. I don't mind mixing species, but it would also be cool to have one with just geckos (or lizards), or just snakes, or what have you.

    Re: Would You Buy a HC Calendar?

    Thanks for the input CM, For the first one I think I'll be mixing species, I've got lined up so far:
    Green Iguana
    Bearded Dragon
    Leopard Gecko
    Corn Snake
    Ball Python
    Pastel Boa

    I personally don't live in a very reptile-rich area so i'm not sure I could find 12 different morphs of leopard gecko or 12 different kinds of frog just yet. Maybe if you guys buy enough calendars we can afford to send me to costa rice ot do a field herping calendar.

    Re: Would You Buy a HC Calendar?

    Yeah I want to find a crestie, water dragon, and emperor scorpion for sure and possibly some whites tree frogs, a tokay, maybe a uro and a green tree python. I'd also like a tort *cough*road trip for Oscar *cough*

    It all depends upon what I can find up here.

    I have two of those things on the list. It's too bad you're so far away. You'd be welcome to mine at any time.

    I do actually have access to a nice camera and some lighting equipment. If you like, once you post some example shots, I could fire off a couple in the same style. If they were high enough quality, and consistent with the other photos, you'd be welcome to them.

    Well if you guys want to contribute go for it. If they look good then they may make it into the calendar, I jst don't want anyone ot get upset if they don't make the cut. Typh I kind of had you in mind for the GTP since I know you toy with photography.

    What!! You dont want my less than first grade quality photos, lol:p

    As far as Ocsar, help yourself, I will do a driveby........as I roll up to your house I will kick him out the door and drive like a crazy woman, lol.

    I am not sure if you really want him,, he is not a perfect example of what a sulcata should look like, he has pyramidding and remember his shell has damage done to it by a dog. It is of course up to you, lol

    I am not sure if it would put out the wrong kind of message,, you know the one,, its okay if you tort looks like this, when in all actuality its not. Who knows, i could be wrong, lol

    Come on, Oscar would be perfect, especially in his diaper with his ninja turtle slippers on! I'd buy a dozen calendars for that! ;)

    I'll just send you whatever I can do. I won't be offended if you don't use the photos. On the other hand I will be ecstatic if you do. :D
