    Hi Mitch

    Wow this is a great shot. You have focused perfectly on the snakes face and its pose makes for a really nice composition.

    Were you not scared?! I saw one recently only to shriek and run away, when I should have taken a picture

    Thanks, Rebecca

    Cool shot. A close up of the head would have made an awesome shot.

    Mitch, awesome shot, you have captured him perfectly. He looks a bit to close for comfort.
    A bit of info on your setup would be great, camera, lens, settings etc, as I can't see any exif data.

    Rebecca,
    Not scared just respectful that this is a wild animal and it's scared of this big hulking thing staring at it's face...

    I was about 2 feet away lying on the ground under a shade tree, It's a small Rat Snake (about 18 inches long...) It almost got me a couple of times...LOL, Would have been annoying, but nothing else...

    Bobo, Normally I would shoot snakes with my 55-250 is lense but my daughter was the one who found this guy and called me and I ran down the block not thinking just wanting the pic.. I really like snakes. Next time I will be ready...lol

    Glenn, I have a Canon XS with a 28-135mm, is,usm lense, I was toggled on AV. No filter or flash..

    Can you tell me how to transfer the exif data along with my pics?

    Thanks

    Mitch

    Perfect pose he looks ready to strike. I would have ran for a bigger lens (only because I would like to be further away from snake). Great!

    Mitch thanks for the info, sorry Im afraid i can't help you with out to include exif data on your images, as I am a beginner on this forum, and in photography, but I am sure someone more advanced on this thread can point you, in the right direction.

    The EXIF data is there in Mitch's image, the problem, especially for Internet Explorer users, is seeing it - Firefox has an Add-on that makes a right click viewer option available.

    This is what I see using Firefox;
    EXIF IFD0

    Camera Make {0x010F} = Canon
    Camera Model {0x0110} = Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS
    Picture Orientation {0x0112} = normal (1)
    Last Modified Date/Time {0x0132} = 2012:05:20 04:44:29

    EXIF Sub IFD

    Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) {0x829A} = 1/200 second ===> 0.005 second
    Lens F-Number / F-Stop {0x829D} = 71/10 ===> /7.1
    ISO Speed Ratings {0x8827} = 800
    Original Date/Time {0x9003} = 2012:05:20 04:44:29
    Shutter Speed Value (APEX) {0x9201} = 499712/65536
    Shutter Speed (Exposure Time) = 1/197.4 second
    Aperture Value (APEX) {0x9202} = 368640/65536
    Aperture = /7.03
    Exposure Bias (EV) {0x9204} = 1/3 ===> 0.33
    Flash {0x9209} = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
    Focal Length {0x920A} = 70/1 mm ===> 70 mm
    Image Width {0xA002} = 3888 pixels
    Image Height {0xA003} = 2592 pixels
    Here's a method that works for anyone though as long as the EXIF data is in the file * -
    a) Copy the Image Location (a url ending "jpg") to your computer's clipboard (in IE; Right click and select Copy Shortcut)
    b) Open a new tab at this site; http://regex.info/exif.cgi
    c) Paste the url into the top box on the page
    d) Click the adjacent button
    e) If it worked, you will probably be presented with a lot of information, typically down to the Camera serial number and possibly even the number of shutter clicks! (although this depends on the manufacturer), including much that really means nothing to us (unless you know the byte look ups).

    * There are many things that may cause EXIF data to be stripped, e.g. adding a border to your picture, wrong option set in your PP program, hosting it as an attachment here at CiC, etc.

    The Firefox viewer Add-on above comes from Alan Raskin, to whom I am grateful, as I use it daily here to help me help you all.

    Cheers,
