If you have read my last two posts about expressions, you will note that frogs are interesting given the right highlights and reflections that help infer a certain temper, be it happy or angry. And, yes, I brightened the eyes.

Animals can be quite expressive and many of us are inclined to attribute animal expressions to our own (anthropomorphism). Hence animal shots with human like expressions are often great captures.

These were taken last fall. I like the play of light and how the stark cold blues contrasted with the silvery grey of the squirrel. It was one of those cases where the white balance was perfect out of camera.

Expectations play a role in photography. If your audience is used to seeing something in colour, a black and white treatment may make them hesitate and think for a moment. And that cannot be bad.

These photographs tell different stories, the mood, intensity and impact changes from one to the other. I would categorize these as two separate photographs rather than one deriving from the other.

Often the colour out of the camera does not resemble what we thought we saw. Colour casts, white balance errors, camera profiles are easily diagnosed problems. In the colour version of this photo the background was far too saturated and bright, not all as I remembered it. Once I figured out how to fix it the photo looked exactly as I had seen it and it made doing the black and white even easier.

I came across this rabbit on a path in the park. It was probably an abandoned pet. Obviously young and unaware of the danger of other animals it pretty much ignored me. I had to wait until its foraging moved it into the bush to continue along the path without disturbing it.
