STRUGGLING AT SHOOTING A FROG

PREVIOUS / NEXT

ANIMALS by KRISS on 12 december 2015

Wake up muffin, wake up ! No, Kate doesn’t call me muffin but this is how it sounded to my ears when Kate woke me up last morning because there was a frog in the veranda.
Barely having had time to open my eyes I grabbed a 105mm and the 70-200 and set about shooting the tiny green animal.

And guys this is difficult ! Shooting a frog standing still isn’t because if you crawl slowly they will let you get close enough to get amazing shots.
It is shooting them jumping that gets tricky.
Then this is the first time in my life I do that so maybe after a few sessions I would improve !

The first thing is that I didn’t quite expected how much length an unfolded jumping frog represents and I first positioned myself too close.
Then you need to get the silly animal jumping and it doesn’t do it on command !

Even with the 11 frames/second the Nikon D4s delivers, I barely managed to get any decent picture (and I had Kate’s hand, the frog molester, in the frame).
Yes, she tried to help me by getting the frog to jump, tickling her with a straw of hay and it did work, mostly when the camera was in between shots ! This is yet another frog post though and I promise next time I won’t post anything unless I have a National Geo worth picture of a frog !
