    I'm mesmorized by frogs! Everywhere I look FROGS! These guys are a difficult bunch to snap pics of. I did the best I could before they hopped on their way

    Technical Data:
    EOS 20D with 50mm f/1.8, 430EX Speedlight

    Pickerel Frog - http://www.geocities.com/primarycanary/PickerelFrogCloser_scaled.jpg (540 KB)
    North Grey Tree Frog - http://www.geocities.com/primarycanary/NorthGreyTreeFrog_scaled.jpg (529 KB)

    The one thing I wish I was able to do was get closer and get down lower to the pickerel frog. The tree frog pic I got better shots showing the side of the body but I like this shot more because I can see both of his eyes. I think a macro lens would help with this. Does anyone here photograph frogs? Any tips?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    The Tamron 90mm f/2.8, is one of the best lens for this kind of photo, it's very sharp...

    The #1 is the best in my opinion, but you can improve much more, i didn't liked the #2 because the light became too artificial...

    You are right. Tighter and better angles will do the trick. Lessen the harshness of the lighting. Maybe a diffuser for the flash. And just a thought, maybe a spray bottle on a mist to give the frogs some wetness.
