Frog in Black and White

FrogTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Due to the way the light hit the water in this photograph, there were a lot of highlights and hence contrast. It begged for a monochrome treatment. The frog’s coloring blends in well with the greenery and makes it stand out in water. With this monochrome treatment I have given him back his camouflage but lost none of his attitude.

  1. It’s interesting… I wouldn’t think to have a picture like this in black and white, but it does a phenomenal job for the texture.

  2. Very nice. In b&w it almost makes the frog disappear.

  5. I love how the image shows the frog in his habitat and that he is one with it. What lens did you use if I might ask?

    • Thanks. I used a 70-200mm VRII on a D7000.

      • Oh I didn’t know they made a 70-200. I have the 70-300mm. Thanks for letting me know. It came out great!

        • The Nikon 70-200 is very expensive lens just under 5 x the cost of the 70-300, the former maintains 2.8 at all focal lengths.
