    Keren euy fotonya, pake kamera yang mana nih?

  2. Mulyadi Setiono says:

    bagus …. bagus ….., tajam dan natural warnanya. Mungkin lebih bagus lagi kalo diambil agak kesamping dikit shg keliatan mata dan sisi badannya.
    Gua juga punya foto frogfish ini tapi kalah dah ama foto loe mah……

    Ini bener frogfish? Kog kayak snapper?
    Ha.. ha.. Good moment, big mouth!
    Dari samping dunk, biar gampang identify untuk ngasih nama latinnya.
    Biar kelihatan terpelajar, ha. ha..
    Mul, kamera loe bukan tandingannya….

    Fanty,.. this is awesome!!!!!….. Obyek menonjol sekali
    Pengambilan frontal seperti ini butuh kejelian di segala sisi.
    Pose bagus, FG dan BG mendukung Obyeknya. Saya setuju dengan pendapat Mul agak kesisi, tapi bukan berarti pengambilan frontal selalu lebih jelek, dan ini buktinya…. GOOD SHOT FANTY

    Great action shot… It takes patience to wait for the right moment to press the shutter.

    Is your internal flash positioned near the shutter button? This may be the cause of the dark shadow on the left of the fish’s body. (Light obstructed by the lens barrel, or by the fish’s body). A simple trick that works (well it worked for me), is to use a slate to reflect the flash. Just position the slate above the position of the internal flash… take several shots while moving the slate a little to the left or right, then check which shot is best. The most difficult part of this trick is to hover motionless and steady til you get the perfect shot :) Good luck!

    As I have mentioned in the Yuji’s photo comments, that picture is not necessary evently lighted. And this one is a perfect sample.

  9. Irene Pramudito says:

    It’s the other way around lah. Yuji’s crab’s light is good. This one, the shadows don’t do anything to enhance the picture.
