White box photographs of a Pacific tree frog

  • Thread starter ECooper

Last weekend I went out to mow the lawn and happened upon this little Pacific tree frog (Pseudacris regilla). I scooped it up to save it from the mower and of course to take the opportunity to take some photos for my blog. I opted to take it into the house and photograph it in a white box. It would have been nice to have photographed it in its natural surroundings, but it wasn’t likely to pose for me after being picked-up. Besides, I thought that the soft lighting of the white box would make for some nice pictures while the box itself would help contain the critter during the shoot.

Olympus OM-D E-M5; Zuiko 12-50mm ƒ/3.5-6.3 zoom and Zuiko 35mm macro; manual exposure (F11-16 @ 1/125 sec); Vivitar 283 flash and VP-1 Vari-power adapter (1/16 power); ISO: 200

That's brilliant, Ernie! Nice work.
still loving your work Ernie,keep it up
Amazing as always!

p.s: I can't wait for you to take photo of some iridescent creature.
Metallic green bee? Nooo, Chrysina gloriosa! Or how about a simple yet elegant blow fly? They come in sooo many colors!

Wow, I didn't think my "subtle" trick would work hehe. It's more fun when it's a random experience and you tell how it came to be. Thanks though, anything from you is worth viewing anyway.
