Photographing frogs in macro

A series of frogs photographed with a dedicated macro lens

Having a rainforest on our doorstep has lots of advantages, including these gorgeous green frogs. This past week, the Whitsundays has seen a down pour tropical rain. Luckily for residents this also means we get to enjoy a symphony of frogs!

So what’s a photographer to do in wet weather? Like any good photographer, we grabbed our cameras, macro lens, and tripods, and went photographing frogs. Here are a few of my favourites from yesterdays shoot!

Can’t help but think of this next one as Kermit the frog with his huge eyes staring right at the camera :D

Last but not least, the fat belly frog!

Lazy Frog :)

All these frog images were photographed with a Canon 7D camera + Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens + macro Twin Lite MT-24EX flash. They were post processed (only slightly to add sharpness to the eye area and cropping) with Aperture 3 and Photoshop CS5.
