Photography is all about light. Finding a subject where it and the light are the only focus is rare. I believe I have come close in these shots. Given a choice I would like to take more of these contrasty shots with different plants and flowers.

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.

Humans often express emotion through their stance, or body language. And while the same rules do not apply to animals, we interpret postures in human terms. Getting shots where this is the case is certainly one the more interesting approaches to animal photography.

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.

Against or on a good background these insects make for wonderful shots. But like a number of insects, unless you are familiar with them, finding the eyes can be difficult. In this case they are on either side of the face.

I came across this Green Heron in unusual light. It reminded me of jungle lighting they use in the movies; just a touch more saturation for colour density and a balance of shadow and highlights, emphasizing the midtones.It just clicked in the viewfinder.

It is said that perfect exposure is a matter of taste, that apart from generalities like “not too dark, not too bright”, there is really no rule of thumb for great exposures. It’s a result of a decision by the photographer. For years I preferred a slightly dark approach, while these days I like things just a bit brighter. These brash flowers are a good example.
