[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another of our little Red Eyed Tree Frogs (Agalychnis callidryas) which we have been lucky enough to have had access to over the summer. Normally native to Central America although our ones are captive bred and have not been stripped out of the wild population which has been in serious decline over the last decade or so.

Once again, back in my comfort zone, shot in a studio with a spray painted foam core board background this. Lighting consisted of two Elinchrom 400BX flash heads firing through softboxes to soften the light, one behind and above, the other almost straight in front.

Aperture: F9
Shutter Speed: 1/125th
ISO: 100

This is the kind of sharp image that touches perfection as with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.
What do you want to learn more ? What can I say more ? I don't know ...
Amazing colors and details. This frog is so cute.
She should speak and have wings.

Nice colored pic with good focus and details. Well done.

Hi Miles

Again, a professional quality photograph. Nothing I can say to improve the image. Maybe it's a little tight on the right hand side?

Hello Miles,
Very impressive. However, I feel that there is some overexposure on the green parts of the body. I did a workshop just to see, adjusting brightness and contrast, which I prefer, but very good as is. Pity you do not permit uploading the result of a workshop.
I wonder why it has such beautiful red eyes - they probably have a very specific anatomical or other function.

Hi Miles,
Very well controlled with exquisite results showing in perfection the frogs natural colors and designs. High quality with pin sharpness, a great photographic result.

Hi Miles,
Brilliant capture of this tree frog. Your lighting is really good. The detail and color in the frog are excellent. It looks like it could be a poster at a zoo. Very well done.

Hi Miles
Interesting subject. I'm not sure about the exposure, although the sharpness is amazing, as well as the colours.

Thanks for sharing.
