Frogger in HDR

If anyone played video games in the 80’s…I think I may have found Frogger in my yard!  This little guy was in our garden and he was nice enough to pose for a few shots.  Taking shots of any animals or any critter in HDR is tough…so I’d say using a single raw photo to produce your HDR is a great idea!   When you try to take multiple shots, they move and this creates a blur making your shot not so great.   You can also try this with sports shots as well!   I have seen some very cool motocross shots in HDR that look unreal!  The dirt kicking up and the colors of the riders uniforms = cool!!   I’d like to try shooting that one day!

Ah the memories of Frogger!  I grew up on Atari, Intellivsion and going to the arcades to play Frogger.  I preferred Dig Dug and Zaxxon!   Now these days its XBox Live and the Wii!!   Hope the little guy above hopped away and avoided traffic!   Always brings me back to the Seinfeld episode with George and the Frogger machine.  Funny!  Enjoy!

    I remember Frogger on Atari! I LOVED that game. Ha! I totally agree that a single RAW processed as an HDR is best for shots like these. Awesome shot of the frog. He’s so cute!

    • Thanks Amber! I enjoy Frogger as well and have it on my IPhone! =) He was a cute little guy…we put him in a tub for bit and he became used to us. Soon after we let him go…he allowed me to get pretty close to get this shot. Suprisingly with a big macro lens in his face.
