p.1 #1 · Humming Birds


Had a opportunity to try my hand at shooting some humming birds on my friends cottage deck. They are extremely fast. Had to prefocus on a spot, and tried with both a single and a additional slave flash to freeze the action as the dark leaf backgrounds provided challenging light levels. Your C&C greatly appreciated.

Hi,

For me, number 3 is the best of the set, and quite nicely done. Would frame up nicely, I think.

Send me your email and I will send you some PDFs about hummer photography that we use in our photo club ............or your mailing address and I will send you a CD of the whole set.

Hi Dave:

A nice series of shots. Technically, I think you did well as it sounds like you are still experimenting with flash. #1 AND #3 are IMO cropped to tightly to the left. In the last, I would clone out the feeder.

Lastly, there is nothing wrong with green or very dark bgs. In the future, think BG. See if you can position your feeder amongst colorful flowers. You might even use two feeders one with a colorful bg and one with a darker BG.

I look forward to seeing more.

Jonathan thanks for looking
Thomas they are a very challenging subject to be sure. Amazingly quick.
Tim thanks it was fun coordinating the multiple flash units
Morris thanks for looking
Valjr it was addictive. I sent hours trying to catch the right look
Don thanks for looking
Ted thanks for the info. I will re crop #1 & #3 and clone out the feeder without compressing the fore ground.

These all look great from a technical perspective. I've had mixed success in the past with hummers and have never tried to add a flash. I'd agree with Ted that cloning out the feeder in the last shot would be my #1 pick.
