Saturday March 5th was the day of my first ever captive frog photography workshop. I will be announcing a second workshop in the coming weeks. Do contact me if interested to have your name added to the short list. We had three participants for this inaugural workshop and after some initial instruction on the use of a macro flash bracket and flash positioning they were off and running, creating fabulous images. I will share some of their images here on the blog once they are able to process and send me some low-res image files. Without a doubt, the ever-popular Red-eyed Tree Frogs stole the show. Tree frogs have a way of doing that with their fabulous expressions and long-gangly legs making for great poses. Here are a few images that I created in between assisting the workshop participants. I also created a mini-pond for some aquatic set-ups with the Tomato Frog and Budgett’s Frog and a large piece of lichen covered tree bark was used to compliment the Vietnamese Moss Frog’s superior camouflaged coloration. A BIG thanks also to the amazing staff at Reptilia Zoo for all their superb assistance during the entire workshop. Since the workshop also included the cost of admission to the zoo, we were able to spend several hours photographing some of the highly venomous and lethal snakes in their enclosures, such as the Black Mamba and King Cobra. Stay tuned for those images in a future blog post.
