Snake Eyes



After I tested the incredible zoom on the new Panasonic Lumix TZ-41 [Amazon Link] I tried the macro setting.

As it was a little dark in the terrarium I mounted the Lumix TZ-41 to a lightweight Gorillapod for compact cameras [Amazon Link] and put it on the small lug in front of the glass window of the terrarium. After I set the TZ-41 to macro mode I used a two second self timer to take the photo.

Because of the light in the terrarium the photo had a green cast which I could quickly correct with Apple Aperture [Mac App Store Link] by setting the white balance temperature a little cooler and increasing the tint.
