A milk frog in the leaves of a Hoster - Indoor setup using two side flashes and reflectors to control the lighting - hope you like it ;)
Note on comment -

This set up was at a Frog and Reptile photographic workshop. The owner of the animals has kept and bred a number of exotic species and is herself an award winning photographer, the images are of a captive bred amphibian. All images were in a controlled environment, animals were healthy and showing no signs of stress.....stress signs being frantic to get away, or loss/change in colour. This was a 1 to 1 session so there was not a lot of activity to startle the animals....I can assure you the frogs, reptiles or insects have all been returned to their vivarium's in good health. Thank you for your concern.

Olá Brian,
I'm mesmerized beyond such beauty and perfection! The colors and patterns of the leaf, the design and details of the frog and of a extradordinary beauty.
Do you like it?! I love it!!
Amazing work.

Hi Brian,
Very well captured and some good camera technique with the sharpness, exposure and details.

Hello Brian,
Please inform us where and how you captured the frog and whether it survived the session of intense and unnatural treatment. And what became of it afterwards? We have lately seen other images here of small animals captured and photographed in studio under very controlled and artificial circumstances. Is it OK? Will our other members please comment.

Nice attempt and reflecting your hard work. Well done.

Hi Bri

A cracking shot. I like the curving lines of the leaf which contrasts nicely with the darkness of the frog. Perhaps some of the leaf could be cropped out.


Lovely miniature frog, I like the leaf that brings lines and very interesting curves.
Amazing work with lighting.
I know your work, you're very talented. Thanks for sharing with us.

Olá Brian,
This is a picture to remember. I liked it immensely by the inspired simplicity and beauty of the composition as well as for its quality.
Good to see you again here.

One of Angie's frogs? She treats her frogs really carefully. Love the colours and details here as well as the patterns in the leaf that lead in to the frog. Nice image. :)

Hi Brian, such a cute little guy in such a detailed setting. Love the curves and lines in the leaf that contrast with his darker markings. Fiona

Beautiful capture , bright colors , sharp and nice POV.

Thanks for sharing.


Beautiful frog Brian and nice POV. I like its composition. Nice soft light too.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Bri

You couldn't make this background if you tried. So surreal the result. Nice work on the lighting. BRAVO
