did you use a flash? or is this natural light?
From the title of the thread I was expecting old man sitting in lawn chairs in a backyard Very cool photos though.
No old men, just old terrapins.
Thanks for viewing and reviewing...anyone else?
Flash looks good in the second, it served as nothing but fill flash and that was the wisest thing to use!
In the first, given the background is not bright, it doesn't look quite so good. It's too direct and the photo looks like a directly lit up night scene.
Well, on the first one I wanted the background to be darker than it was (ugly fence) and I did use a diffused fill flash with a Gary Fong Lightsphere (I used it on the second one as well). I needed this little gal (we think she came into the yard to lay eggs...it's that time of year) to reach out of the background as she appeared to want to do. I guess I don't understand what makes the light "too direct".
i actually really enjoy the first pic, for once the flash doesn't ruin it for me
Thanks. The first is my favorite just because of the profile of the ancient beast .
