Striped Lynx Spider (Oxyopes salticus) A Striped Lynx Spider I saw in some weeds a couple months ago. I had a bit of a hiatus in posting photos to JungleDragon but mainly due to me trying to find ways to photograph plants in an aesthetically pleasing way, looking at photos online for inspiration. In addition to this, I am also trying to photograph birds I have no good photos of such as the Tropical Kingbird, White Eyed Parakeets, Blue and Yellow Macaw and Magnificent Frigatebird.

  1. I can't wait to see your flower photos. They can be challenging at times (there is so much variation in shape/color), but I always have fun with flowers!

    But back on topic:
    I absolutely love this! Really pretty photo of a gorgeous spider!

    1. Thank you Lisa! I actually was supposed to go outside to photograph eight different plants today however some strong rain showers had other plans for me lol Posted 15 days ago
  2. Perhaps this helps, almost 20,000 flower/plant photos sorted by popularity (scroll down)

    Although it's subjective, I think composition is the most important aspect of flower photography. Meaning, a clean and simple scene without too much distractions.

    1. Thank you for the advice Ferdy! The list of images certainly did help as I was struggling to find a way to photograph some of the mosses, but I think I have it figured it out now:) Also, I have been looking at some photos on JungleDragon and opted to photograph the flowers using only natural light to get the true colour and a proper exposure without my harsh flash.

      1. Great, happy it helped. When using flash, using a large diffuser might also help. Posted 14 days ago
  3. You're doing great, Wesley! I can't wait to see more of your photos :). I enjoy photographing flowers, but lighting is always my biggest problem. I use a large diffuser, like Ferdy mentioned above, which helps. Posted 13 days ago
  4. Thank you so much Christine! Lighting can be a challenge for me as well, I have a speedlight as well as a diffuser, but I can be lazy at times (all the time) and so I use my pop-up flash with a sheet of paper as my diffuser. Posted 13 days ago
