Portrait of a Hamster by shubat Portrait of a Hamster by shubat
This Syrian Hamster was a pet of mine a few years back. Her name was Ginger and she lived about a year and a half. I took this photo not long after I had fixed up my Canon AE-1P... I still didn't have a macro lens and I was using a desk lamp to light this. I got lucky and captured this shot... I think it looks like a real portrait and if you have ever tried photographing rodents at close range you know how hard it can be.

This is one of my peronal favorites. I hope you enjoy it too...

(edit) - This was exhibited at the 2007 Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, Ca.

Hello,

I really love this photography and the Hamsters is really cute.


I'm actually looking for some good photos like this one to post on my blog's Facebook page, I'm trying to get authorization from their owners to post them.

All the credits will also be given to the photographer on the same post, using their deviantART username or any other name they wish me to credit. 

I will perfectly understand if you don't authorize the use of this photography on my page and will not use it in any way without your authorization. 

I hope you don't mind me asking for it and I hope I didn't bothered you with this. 

Thank you for your attention,
Best regards!

I just love this beautiful picture. Did she play with that ball often? How did she die?

It looks like a glass of red wine on the LHS. Was Ginger on the plonk when you took this?

This is simply a perfect shot <3 I just love everything about the picture! Especially how you were able to capture the water bottle, wheel, and part of the home all in one shot with her!
