Frog Close Up

  1. Finally caught a frog while fishing in a local swamp this weekend. I've been meaning to catch one for a portrait session.

    He said this was his good side.

    D200, Nikkor 105mm + Nikon PN-11 Bounced White Lightning and a second bounced on camera SB-800.

    Great shot. I think I can see from the reflection that it is handheld.

  11. Excellent frog potrait, Phil!
     

  12. Thanks guys!
     
  13. Outstanding

    Great portrait. I can see you in the reflection, I can see your camera, I can see your arm...

    Did you take froggy inside for your portrait session? It looks like the flash was bounced off a wall, based on the reflection in froggy's eye.

  14. Yes, I shot it inside, which was quite difficult at first. After the first few flash bursts I think it temporarily blinded him so he stopped jumping out of the box.

    And yes, I bounced both light sources.
     
  15. <private moment> I can never resist kissing a frog.

  16. Very very nice capture, the pic and the frog.
     
  17. I did kiss him, hoping he'd turn into a D3...as you can tell from my gear list, it didn't work:confused::frown:

    Thanks Glenn and Tom!
     
  18. What a beauty! I used to catch those all the time as a kid! I just loved my froggies. :Love:
