Salamander In The Mud

Creatures to photograph can be found anywhere.

This tiny salamander was found right outside my house.

The photo in this post was taken using my Nikon D300S camera body and 60mm macro lens.

To create this image the setting in camera were: ISO 1250, 60mm, f/3.3, 1/100 sec.

Then for this blog post I selected a Lightroom preset in post processing. The preset I chose creates a spotlight effect on the salamanders head to draw the viewers eye there.

If I didn’t use that preset it could be difficult to see where the subject of the photograph is.

Tell me in the comments if you like this photo.
