About the Image(s)

This image of a frog was taken at a hands-on macro workshop at Nature Visions in Manassas, Virginia called Frogs, Reptiles, and Insects and it was led by Mike Matthews. I, unfortunately did not have a macro lens. I enjoyed using my new Godox speedlite. First time using speedlite.

I set my Canon Rebel T2i on manual mode, ISO 400, shutter 1/200, aperature f 18. I did very little manipulation to the image. I cropped it a little.

look at the original, it's a lot of light, hope you get better with flash, the result will be rewarding. Other than that, it's sharp on the eye, color is great.   Posted: 11/11/2019 09:22:32

Nice focus and DoF to keep entire frog in focus. I wold suggest to the frog that, when getting his portrait done, he choose a different color group of leaves. :). That said, given that the frog apparently doesn't have good color sense, I wold suggest desating the plant. The frog is the subject and beautiful in his own right, but the brightness and lightness of the pinks compete with the frog and draws my eye away. Pretty as he is, he's not as bright as that leaf behind him. I love how you nailed the focus and exposure on his eye and that needs to be where the viewer lingers.   Posted: 11/11/2019 18:47:51

I find this an interesting image with a sharp focus and good depth of field. I really like the colors of the frog and the catch light in his eye. He looks like he has his eye on his next meal!

I find the leaf at the frog's rear to be a little too bright. You might give consideration when cropping to move the frog slightly to the right. In my opinion, the image might be strengthened if he had a little more space in front of him.

Overall a nice image.   Posted: 11/14/2019 08:38:21
