p.1 #1 · Anna's HB set


Here are a few more pics of the female anna's hummingbird. Still not getting any break in the weather so I have to shoot these at high ISOs.

Never get tired watching these little gals.


#1

[7D 0.002 sec (1/640) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 2000]


#2 This is the younger female anna's

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 1600]


#3

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 1600]


#4

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 3200]


#5

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 3200]


#6

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 4000]

#8

[7D 0.001 sec (1/1600) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 800]


#9 After around a thousand shots, these are the only 3 pictures I had with the HB facing the camera.

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 3200]


#10

[7D 0.001 sec (1/800) f/5.6 400 mm ISO 3200]

I would say you did a fine job working at the higher ISO's. You have wonderful detail in most of these, 3 & 5 look a bit soft to my eyes. If head on shots were what you wanted congrats on those. While that angle is interesting it's just not my cup of tea. The OOF beak just doesn't seem to work IMO You did get nice sharp faces on those shots though

Thanks Tim, appreciate the kind comments. I understand how the front photo is not as appealing to the side or profile pictures. I'm trying to get different angle shots of these HBs, hopefully I get different poses, positions and some facial expressions, if at all possible .

Hi Jo:

I think you did an excellent job with poor light on the series.


I do think (maybe it's personal taste)in the future with better light your ss should be higher than 1/640 second for a hovering HB. I try to stay 1/1600 or > and with great light f6.3-7.1 and ss 1/2500-1/3200 .

Thanks Ted, I have been wondering about the perfect setup for HB shooting, and you just shared it! Appreciate it very much! The next few days we'll be having some nice weather so hopefully I can shoot the HB with these setup
