kevin, thank you for the reply. the camera is a rebel xti and the lens is a 48-200 cannon(no image stabilizer).

these pictures were taken prior to me wanting to know my camera. in fact, this is the shot that pushed me to learn more. i've played with higher aperatures, and the tripod makes a considerable difference with this. my main concern is a wider depth of field, for close-up images. typically i like to get the whole animal and some habitat into the picture, but this is a different shot than what i usually look for. i'd like to get better with this lens before i decide to get anything else. i'm just hoping to learn to make quick decisions in the field. i do not really like to handle snakes for an extended photo session, so quick is better. finding more herps trumps photo shoots. one other thing is that i do not want to use a flash.

good question don. i really don't have an answer to that. i think it just may be more of a preference to how "i see it". also, let's say you have a "typically" nocturnal species on a cloudy day. probably nothing, but i hate getting a light in my eyes when my pupils are open. it's just not anything that happens in nature, that's all. like i said, it probably doesn't matter though.

Yeah, if you want more depth of field you are going to have to use a smaller aperture (higher number) and you are going to have to use a slower shutter speed or up the ISO (or use a flash). This is where knowing what kind of image you are trying to achieve is important. For my herp shots I generally like to use and relatively low ISO (~400) and a decent depth of field (usually between f/8 and f/13). So when using my 100mm macro I know I have to either use a slow shutter speed and a tripod, or use flash. Most recently I have been using both as I like natural light but feel a small amount of fill flash opens up the shadows and makes the color pop a little.

There is certainly merit in wanting to learn how to use the equipment you have before buying anything else. A new, expensive lens is not automatically going to get you a sharp shot if you don't know some of the basic techniques. Feel free to post more photos for critique as you take them and I also recommend examining other peoples photos that you like and the settings they used to see if you can figure out how they achieve the look that you like. That, and practice will help getting good, quick shots become second nature.

i know very little about cameras, but would like to know more. this was not on a tripod. i was zoomed in as far as i could go. anything you can suggest would be great. as far as messing with a gravid female, it wasn't me. actually i scold my friend when he does it.

Your image is blurry, due to camera shake. http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutori ... -shake.htm

MINIMIZING CAMERA SHAKE

A telephoto lens may have a significant impact on how easy it is to achieve a sharp handheld photograph. Longer focal lengths require shorter exposure times to minimize blurring caused by shaky hands. Think of this as if one were trying to hold a laser pointer steady; when shining this pointer at a nearby object its bright spot ordinarily jumps around less than for objects further away.
camera shake focal length rule of thumbexample of camera shake with a telephoto lens

Simulation of what happens when you try to aim a laser pointer at a point on a distant wall;
the larger absolute movements on the further wall are similar to what happens with camera shake when you are using a telephoto lens (since objects become more magnified).

Reducing camera shake requires either shooting using a faster shutter speed or holding your camera steadier, or some combination of the two.

To achieve a faster shutter speed you will need to use a larger aperture (such as going from f/8.0 to f/2.8) and/or increase the ISO speed. However, both of these options have drawbacks, since a larger aperture decreases depth of field, and a higher ISO speed increases image noise.

To hold your camera steadier, you can (i) use your other hand to stabilize the lens, (ii) try taking the photo while crouching, or (iii) lean your body or lens against another solid object. However, using a camera tripod or monopod is the only truly consistent way to reduce camera shake.

Pristimantis pardalis

This adult was found along the continental divide in western Panama. This species has a purplish-black dorsum with brown blotches that is reminiscent of a bird dropping, coupled with a dark purple venter and bright cream markings on the groin, thighs, and calves.

Picked up a coachwhip, in shed, on Sunday. It shed, I photographed it, and returned him to his board this morning. This younger, healthier one had take up residency in his absence:

LOL...no I carry 4 lenses with me into the field

The aforementioned 300mm
The 24-105mm
A 16-35mm Canon L series wide angle
and a Tamron 90mm macro

I am finding that I'm using the 300mm more and more...I'm a BIG proponent of in situ photography, and the 300mm allows me to fill the frame with the animal without a close approach. I use the 24-105 quite a bit too, but I really enjoy photographing animals as I find them and leaving them as I found them when finished.

I am finding that I'm using the 300mm more and more...I'm a BIG proponent of in situ photography, and the 300mm allows me to fill the frame with the animal without a close approach. I use the 24-105 quite a bit too, but I really enjoy photographing animals as I find them and leaving them as I found them when finished.

I was kidding, of course ;)

I do think the shots are neat, and are certainly more applicable in open areas where you can see the herps from a distance. Likely one of the reasons that method of photography is so big in Arizona and some of our desert regions. I find it hard to ever be in a position to photograph something before it sees me here in East Texas.

Anyhow, keep up the good work and I hope to see more of your shots!
