....No not like that......


If you are Lucky enough to have a camera with a Flash.
Use it.

Photo your girls twice a week..add the photos to a slide show...and you can see how your girls change throughout their life.

It helps you determine plant Health..

by the way the leave shines back at you..
dull..non reflective leaves are either old fans..
or your girl has a Health problem.
The camera picks up changes faster than the human eye does.

It helps you determine tric coverage.

Some plants are Hiders..especially if they have self-coloured trics..
flashing makes them reflect back at you and shows leaf coverage.
This is best done with the lights totally off.
Flash them in the Dark..for Best View.

It helps determine tric ripening..

If you don't have a microscope or magnifying glass..
flash the trics..
and you will see them gradually start to lose their reflectivity as they go over milky.
This is particulally effective when run through a slide show.
It shows the gradual changes..speeded up.

Also..for some reason aphids turn a very strange colour on digital photos...
they stand out like sore thumbs..
so on aphid season..photo the underside of the leaves..
You will be amazed at how often I have checked a girl and thought she was Clean..
then spotted greenfly when I have downloaded the photos.

You need to curb that evil streak...

LOVING them...we NEED his grow tips.

The other girls are Beauts too..first one has a delicious Blue cast..

Yeah did that on purpose. Had to lull you into a trance with the first couple shots before I "whacked ya" over the head... hahaha!
Oh it worked....Bang...
I Think you need to tell us what you are smoking..coz we could market that evil streak for parents with Teenagers...
get them Honed...:head:

I wish they were pics of Autos but maybe some day...<sigh>
Sound like a Project to me..:thumbs:

He grows in soil, no secret tricks, just lots of attention and care.
Is what I have been saying all along..more people stumpy them by putting them into pre-ferted soil in their first 3 weeks than anything else.

Plain compo...and add ferts..
I was always told that Ferts had to be Passing...
in and out of the soil..
IF your prefert is too Strong..they cannot move away from it..
so they stumpy or burn.

And..another thing..while I'm on me soap-box...

there is not One of those Amended compos that is AF specific...

the slow release ferts are for Photo girl requirements..

which have a much longer Grow time...Not AF's...

there..I feel Better now...:head:

The black cloth I think is the secret to how good those pics are.
Decent camera for sure, and of course gorgeous subjects but with the backdrop - man those trics look tasty!
I Think you are right..I will hap something up..
see what the results are..
think of something more permanant.

Me camera is okay...just the User is crap...:(

I find too that if the room i am using to photo my macros in, is too well lit. Grow room for example. The pics aren't as good as if i did it in a darkened room with the flash on.

The black cloth is probably helping do a similar thing without the room being dark.

He uses a black backdrop cloth and his camera's macro setting.
Okay Bro..you got me again..I'm gonna re-name this forum Trick or Treat....

I looked up from the camera and I though...Fluff...the Dragons have Gone......

if it hadn't been for the green one waving here hand shouting...I'm here..I'm here...

I could have walked past my own girls without seeing them..
it Almost made them Invisible..
with the black back drop...

Hmmm..interesting TRICK....:clap:



Didn't work as well for Bobbys Girl though....
