These were taken in deep shade almost in the dark. I was wondering if I could have gotten him without such a low f/stop? DOF is more shallow than I would like on the head on shot...

When I tried going higher, I kept blowing and he was getting impatient. Rather than loose him completely, I just opened up. I loathe tripods so I can't use a slow enough speed I can't handhold. I prefer no flash (plus I knew it would startle him more than I already had). Suggestions?

Forgot to say, no PP other than conversion to jpeg from RAW and to resize for posting.

Just a comment here, but 190mm on XT is equivalent to @300mm on 35mm. BTW, with 300mm you need more than f5.6 to get the whole frog into focus. Solutions - either tripod or raise ISO to 800 (I know, it may affect the quality).

Still, I am not sure if I find anything wrong with the first shot. I kinda like the focus-on-the-eyes look.

Raising ISO is simple enough :supergrin:

I know, but that's cheating ;). Tripod would serve you better. Not only would it allow you to increase the f value, but would prevent any unwanted camera motion. I have an idea, when you sell that picture you mentioned in another thread, get a nice tripod and a carrying case. :supergrin:

I have a tripod that was a gift. It stays in my car all the time, you know, just in case I happen to get somewhere and need it :supergrin:
