The hummers seem to know I've been gone for a long while and they are making it clear they don't want my camera around

Sorry about the busy backgrounds. I need to move the feeders away from these plants. I'm having trouble with low light shooting. The hummers don't seem to get active until the light is quite low. It is hard getting the shutter up high enough without too much noise. I've tried fill flash, but need to learn how to use that better. Any hints or suggestions?

Thanks,
Nancy




















This looks like the post hit multiple times. I'm not sure how I did that. Sorry. I don't know how to get rid of the others. Ok, I think the others are gone now.

Hi Nancy, jack your ISO TO 3200. Nothing wrong with your images. #2 and 3 are quite sweet.

Absolutely nothing wrong with any of these photos.......I really like #2 and the colors in #3 are simply awesome.

1. If you want to use super-high shutter speeds you will have to get more light, either natural or fill of some kind, onto the photo area, just boosting ISO won't solve the problem by itself.

2. An alternative might be to use a multiple flash setup, a single fill from a flash really won't get you there.

Wow, thank you so much for such kind words Lucky. I am lucky to have so many hummers here, but I'd love to get those wings frozen without so much noise.

Thanks again.

Ted, 3200 - what do you do about the noise I have the 7D which I love, but even at 1600 I have to PP for noise. I'll give it a try though. Thanks for your kind words. I always enjoy your hummers.

Thank you so much Eric. When we were in Arkansas with our kids I showed them your Africa critters. My Daughter-in-Law loves those big cats. She was amazed at your photos.

I didn't realize you had a 7d Nancy. I would still try for a higher ISO 2000 OR 2400 for faster SS. Then selective NR on the bg and afterwards selective NR of the subject at lesser NR settings.
