P-TTL HSS fill flash for a bird picture
2

Hello

I try to make pictures of birds at our birdhouse. When the sun is there, the colours are good, but the sun has the wrong direction, the birds get often no direct sunlight on the feathers.

I tried therefore to use a P-TTL flash for fill. Because I need a high shutter speed, I use the flash in HSS.

My camera is in TAv, I used a -1EV for to get a little underexposed ambience light and because this -1 EV do also lower my flash output, I used for the flash a +1 flash EV.

The first tries looks like it works:

without the flash:

with the flash:

I think it will work, now I must slowly insure the birds at my flash light use.

BTW, in the last picture the DOF is simple too thin, so that it's body is in focus, but the head not really, only in the picture size of the thread-view, the head looks also in the DOF for the eyes.

best regards KPM2
