This weekend is a three day holiday weekend in the UK to celebrate our wonderful British Summer, although this year Summer has been a bit of wash-out with heavy rain and a few interesting lightning storms thrown in for good measure.

However, it's not a holiday for me. Whilst everyone else is eating ice cream on the beach I'm going to be in a dark hot studio photographing a selection of Reptiles and Amphibians with a group of clients on Saturday. On Sunday we are then out in the New Forest with a selection of birds of prey for them to photograph in a "natural" surrounding - in between rain showers if the weather forecast is anything to go by!

So, I hope everyone has a great weekend ...

Lighting: 2 Elinchrom BX 400 Flash heads with softboxes, one on each side.

Hi Miles,
Excellent detail in your capture. I love the vivid colors. Have a great weekend.


Bom dia Miles,
The only thing I dislike here is the call to your site in my opinion very ostentatious and stealing viewer's attention without further nacessidade or practical utility.
The rest is yet another jewel of your squad.

Hi Miles

Obviously you are a professional and will learn little from me but maybe I can learn from you. Were you in manual, aperture priority..., why the settings you chose?

If I have a comment, it's that the image seems just a little tight on the right and top and bottom.
Still a great shot.


I have just visited your site ... I loved the colorful and miniature frogs, and the chameleon. I love them !
Too bad your studio is not in Paris.
This chameleon has the same kind of expression as me when I want to talk to anyone. LOL. I love this animal, so beautiful, so weird, so Camden Town.
Your picture is just excellent, perfeclty balanced and managed for everything. I can't say more.
Do you do high key photography with the chameleon and frogs ?

La exposición y la nitidez son perfectas.
Los colores abigarrados del camaleón son muy llamativos en el estudio, pero seguramente le son de gran utilidad para camuflarse en su medio ambiente.

Hi Miles,
Amazing clarity with excellent color saturation - an interesting reply to Bob's critique

Hello Miles,
Another great image. Have tried a WS again. Hope you had a wonderful creative weekend.

Hi Miles,
Well I think your job sounds a lot more interesting than a lot of peoples holidays, and holidays always come to an end. The details and natural coloring are extremely eye catching with the almost mesmerizing effect they have.

Ciao Miles, fantastic chemeleon on beautiful blurry BG, wonderful colors, fine details, splendid light and excellet sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
