Title: Ribit!
Post by: HeavenHell on July 07, 2012, 09:11:56 AM
Hi.  I wanted to share some frog photos I took earlier this week.  I think the first one is my favorite.

Yes number two is the best IMHO.  The large aperture selected has essentially isolated the frog as the main focus point.

BTW I like all the pictures....but WRT composition the other pics also isolate other, less interesting, features ( eg rocks, sticks, etc...).  I have started to learn this in my work....some of my best pics seem to fill the frame with a single point of interest. 

Of course I have seen many great pics that have several points of interest that "lead" your eye in a pleasing manner.  For your pics I would almost consider this a portraiture...therefore a large aperture often works the best.

Thanks for sharing...

The place where a shot these is a wooded area in Wisconsin that has a spring fed creek running through it.  As you go deeper in the woods, rock bluffs surround you on all three sides and there's a small waterfall where the trail ends.  It's awesome, there are frogs everywhere.

Not sure what kind of frog this is.  I found him out in the woods today and he was kind enough to pose for a few photos.  He even gave me time to setup a tripod.  BONUS!

That's great.

I was angling for such a shot yesterday. A sunny stone, all the frogs jumped into
the water when I got close. So I sat down out of sight of them, expecting them to climb back
onto the stone, over the lip and I had my zoom trained on the lip of the rock. After around
30 minutes I gave up.  But I was sat in the sun!

Cheers Brian

Froggywog or is it a Pollyfrog? Or maybe a Frogpole? What do you call them when they are half way to being a Frog?

Breathing new life into a rather dead thread.
An especially hot day this summer, I was looking for a pond with frogs on my way back home. From far away I could hear loud croaking coming from down an old quarry. When it got closer I couldn't see the origin. Not a single frog. Took another step closer to the pond and suddenly all frogs within 5-10 meters jumped far out into the safety of the water. Walked around the pond, counting upwards of 50 frogs. All intensely green, and most of them loud as hell.

To get this shot I had to ditch my backpack with all gear, and crawl down the slope to the pond.
Edible frog - Pelophylax esculentus. Shot with the 70-200/4L @160mm. 1/500s, f/4.5, ISO 160.

Since it is a dead frog thread, would this be appropriate :)
