Green Tree Frog

A green tree frog was crawling up my window so I abducted him and took some photos. Shot using an SB600 fired into a 28in Westcott Apollo.

Poor little frog!

Here’s the shot:


The shot was taken with my 50mm 1.8 lens.

This is widely recognised as a fantastic lens and for under $200, it’s almost a crime not to get one. I’ve been a bit lazy with using it though because it hasn’t got auto focus… but it’s a sharp lens when you get it right. So when this photo showed up on the cameras LCD I knew I was onto a winner.

Once into photoshop all I had to do was remove some dust that was on the reflective surface (my guitar!) and then I ran it through a new program/photoshop plugin I’ve installed – Nik Sharpener.

This is WOW. I thought my photo was sharp… the before and after with the Nik Sharpener blew me out of the water.

I’ll put a comparison here later today.
