Tree Frog 4

The stick was clipped from a Crape Myrtle - its about 18" long. I clamped the stick in a medium-sized pair of vice grips which was plenty heavy enough to keep it anchored in place. The background is a piece of construction paper. I pre-focused the lens at that depth and then switched to manual focus so I wouldn't have to worry about the auto-focus leading to a missed shot. I marked the stick on the left and right just out of frame to show me where to place the 'lil guy. I had a wired remote shutter release in hand so once I put him on the stick, I just fired away. I used two flashes here, one diffused with an on-flash softbox and the other diffused with a small shoot-thru umbrella. The flash on camera-left was at the level of the frog and the flash on camera-right was above the frog about a foot and angled down at about 45 degrees.
