Using Flash to capture Reptiles and Amphibians

After entering the world of wildlife photography, it quickly becomes obvious that the easy situations rarely exist. As a photographer looking for the best results, it’s essential to do all you can to balance or keep the situation in your favour. This is especially genuine when the animals you want to capture reside in an unfavourable surroundings. From rainforest to open grounds, to mangroves and hot deserts, many of the habitats in which herps (amphibians and reptiles) reside feels like they were made to test a photographer’s patience. And also the fact that many herps are nocturnal, therefore you will not get the images in good light and you need an external source.

In this article, we will help you to use flash to deal with low-light and nighttime conditions while shooting herps. We will discuss the flash and equipment a photographer will require before stepping out, and we will also see how to use soft light to create pictures where the subject pops out – or to just fill in shadows to prevent underexposed field in your image.

How important is Post-Processing in Photography?

While there has always been a raging debate and the thin line between what is clicking/creating a photograph naturally or making/creating it in post production, every photographer will agree that some amount of post processing work can really enhance its beauty. Whichever side your allegiance lies, the process of making a photograph does not stop at the release of the shutter button. In fact, that is only the first half of the process. The second part includes post-processing that photograph.

A photographer should always try to get the best possible results right in the camera by capturing the image with proper exposure and composition, since one can't really fix a bad photograph. While aiming for good photographs straight out of the camera is a good thing to achieve every time, you can really take your images to the next level with post-processing. Post-processing is not always needed, but it is definitely suggested for the best outcome. This article will help you at why you should post-process your images and how it can help you get better results.

These are some basic points where you will get to know how post-processing plays an important role in photography.

Tips for creative Steel Wool Photography

Steel Wool Photography is a more recent but amazing trend in night photography. The genre is similar to what we call light painting photography. One of the most beautiful thing about photography is the infinite opportunities it gives for mixing the technical aspects with art. Steel Wool photography is the best example of this. If you have seen the dramatic and stunning images this technique produces on social media, you may be interested to think this must be a complicated concept that needs lots of work (and lots of expensive equipment).


The concept of this photography basically includes firing up the steel wool and spinning it, the sparks fly off from the steel wool. This craziness mixed with a long exposure, gives you some fantastic and unusual pictures. So, we have put together some tips to help you get those steel-wool shots.
