D4 and Hummingbirds

I am still working up images I took while lugging my gear around Ecuador scouting out the various lodges for Hummingbird photography and next year's workshop. My main goal was to photograph different species of these fast moving birds. I'm still working up my images (hundreds to go), so it's a slow trickle.

The Technical Details: Shutter Speed 1/250sec, Aperture f/18 or f20, ISO400-800, Exposure Program Manual Mode, 7 strobes from 1/8 to 1/64 to generate effective 1/10,000 second exposure. CC always welcome.


The hummingbird of Love !

Waiting for their turn

More hummer photos from the trip can be found here.
