View Full Version : Gekko gecko pictures

Here are a few updated photos I got of one of our tokay geckos that we got from Cliff Flock in December. We have gone a little crazy lately taking pictures since we got our new flash set-up.

Wondering what settings you use. I can never get good indoor pictures of my geckos.

Well, we almost always use some sort of flash unit when shooting photos indoors. From there you just need to learn how to work the manual settings on your camera. (ISO, shutter speed, aperture...)

For these photos we used our new alien bee studio flash units, with a black drop in the background a few feet away from the subject (so that it wouldn't show the imperfections in the drop) I cannot remember exactly, I would have to look at the original photo to be exactly sure, but for the settings I had an ISO of 100, my aperture at 9.0 and my shutter speed at 1/60 of a second.

If you have any more specific questions you are more than welcome to drop me a PM, we are always more than willing to help out.

Very nice pics! Strikedistance I would recomend getting the book "Understanding Exposure Revised Edition" by Bryan Peterson. I have found that book very helpfull on understading how to make a good exposure.

Two questions:

1) Where did you get that gecko?

2) How much did it cost?!?

I spent a little personal time with a tokay at my friends shop (he was tasting my hand) and Ive fallen in love! I have been surfing round looking into getting one and that is the most beautiful gecko i have ever seen!

Is he gonna keep the white/greyish color or he will turn light blue as he grow?

Where did you get that gecko?

We got 4 little juvies from Cliff Flock in December. He has some very nice ones!

Is he gonna keep the white/greyish color or he will turn light blue as he grow?

I have never grown one up from a juvenile before, but from what I am seeing their colors become more vibrant. Maybe Cliff will chime in since he has raised more :)

this is the most beautifull tokay ive seen!!!

Thank you! (and a big thanks to Cliff). We are really enjoying them, and hope to get more in the near future.

I agree Sarah they seem to get more vibrant as they grow. They tend to keep what I think looks like a blue/grey body.
Here is a few pictures of the 2 that I kept from last year. I have had 3 hatch so far this year I will work on getting some pics of them soon.
