Rufous colors.

  1. Just playing around today, tried a single fill flash from the left at 1/32 manual power on the second picture and ttl-bl on the first, aperture priority 1/60 f6.3, this way the background didn't go black.

    Also used the 200 f4 micro on a tripod and the remote with tin foil reflector so the remote would work from behind. manualy focused on the perch.

    Sometimes I like how these movement shots work out, you just need something in focus to make them work.


    Narrow depth of field, was hard to work with, it was cloudy and drizzleing out just a small pop of flash.
  2. The first one is kinda neat. The focus on the second seems soft.
  3. Thanks for the feedback Gordon, the natural light brings out the colors of the gorget the best but I just didn't have enough to get a decent depth of field.

    I will try again.

  4. WOW....twist and shake in the first shot!! Looks like he/she is doing a dance!! Nice captures!! :D :D :D :D
