Portal Practice (Hummer shadow)

I decided I better get in another practice session before my Chiricahua trip. Overcast and on and off rain showers seemed like a good time to test things since there is no way to know what the weather is going to do down South.

I tried my Train Chasing lens this time. 70-200 F/2.8 L IS with my 1.4 converter. All are hand held. Flash W/Better Beamer.

Nice shots Roger. Look like you were dealing with the type of light me and Squirl have 90% of the time. Well done.

How do you like that better beamer? I've been thinking of getting a flash and trying one of these out. Especially with duller weather approaching...cheers...Don

Beautiful shots. The flash in #1 and 2 is more natural than the one in #3. Peter

They say practice makes perfect -- and they are right. Looking forward to the results of your trip -- bring back a Painted Redstart and a Trogon (pictures only, of course).

The better beamer once you start to figure out how to adjust to different conditions is wonderful. I wish I would of bought it sooner than I did.

I believe the learning curve using flash also means you need to make changes on the fly according to the background not just the light. OH YES I am still learning.

I have no idea what all I am going to find but if it is alive I will try for a couple of shots.
