Many people associate portrait photography only with images of people. A good portrait can be made of any interesting subject (even a snapping turtle).
I like to make portraits of people, animals, birds, barns, old houses, flowers and landscapes. The techniques of good portrait photography are similar for all these subjects.
The common snapping turtle is a large freshwater turtle. Its natural range extends from southeastern Canada, southwest to the Rocky Mountains as far east as Nova Scotia and Florida.
Common snappers are noted for their belligerent disposition when out of the water, their powerful beak-like jaws, and their highly mobile head and neck (hence the specific name "serpentina", meaning "snake-like"). In some areas they are hunted very heavily for their meat, a popular ingredient in turtle soup. These turtles have lived for up to 47 years in captivity, while the lifespan of wild individuals is estimated to be around 30 years.
