The perfect moment

Images that sum up the perfect moment.
Whether that’s a bride and groom kissing on their wedding day, the moment a kingfisher swoops down to catch a fish, the instance the sun hits the horizon creating a starburst effect…

“Photographing Frogs and Other Amphibians” Ebook

“When most people think of charismatic animals, frogs are not usually the first ones that come to mind. This lack of general appeal can often have negative results when decisions are being made about their conservation. Robin’s ebook is a fantastic “How to get the best photograph!” guide which will enable people who encounter frogs to portray them in an engaging and professional way. Not only is this book incredibly useful for people wanting to get better shots of frogs, but also for people who are interested in photographing wildlife. Frogs are very good subjects for nature and macro photography and this ebook will ensure that people can portray frogs in their true form – as wonderfully endearing, charismatic animals who deserve our full attention to ensure they do not disappear in the near future.” Phil Bishop, Co-Chair, IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group and Chief Scientist, Amphibian Survival Alliance

Designed for researchers and conservationists working with amphibians, the “Photographing Frogs and Other Amphibians” ebook by Robin Hoskyns, aims to provide an overview of techniques that can be used to create engaging images and demonstrate how these images can be utilized to tell the stories of amphibians and amphibian conservation.

The ebook does not delve too deep into the technicalities of each approach, but will hopefully stimulate further learning for those that wish to take their photography and communication skills to the next level.

Some of the topics covered include: visual storytelling, basic settings, post processing, flash techniques, biosecurity, dealing with the elements, and so much more.
