Garter Snake

This poor garter snake got sucked into our pool filter system and was drowned. I was sorry about this, as I like snakes, and particularly appreciate their efforts in the population control of rodents, of which we have an abundance.


I placed the snake on a piece of black cloth and lit it with a softbox containing an SB600 camera left and another softbox with an SB700 camera right. Strobes were in manual mode and were triggered by the pop up flash of my D90 in commander mode
