    How is this one ?

    I think i'm on to something...........


    Tv(Shutter Speed)
    1/200Sec.
    Av(Aperture Value)
    F9.0
    Metering Modes
    Center
    Exposure Compensation
    0
    ISO Speed
    1250
    Lens Canon 300 f/4L + 1.4TC
    -
    Focal Length
    420.0 mm

    30 deg. right, natural light(setting sunlight)

    30 deg. left, reflected light from a spot light bulb. I reflected it off a white poster board, about 4 feet from subject.

    Flash camera mounted---1/32 power


    The combination of the light and the flash, made a huge difference in stopping the wings. Most of the shots still have movement, but nowhere near what it was with just the flash. This one froze nicely.


    How is this one ?

    Yeh, it's not too bad ..... he said jealously!

    I think one of the other major lessons from this is - Look at the ISO setting.

    This would scare-the-pants of a lot of people who would have visions of unmanageable noise. But get the exposure right and noise is not a problem.

    Steve - Am running our of superlatives to write in response to your work.

    I think you could push the ISO even further, depending on what the capabilities are of your camera, if you wanted an even faster shutter speed. It is easy to remove from the plain background in PP and would not be as noticable on the bird itself. What do ya reckon?

    You don't need to ask how this one is, Steve. This is a brilliant shot.

    No one said gorgeous yet so I'm saying it. Gives you a real thrill when something comes out so well doesn't it.

    Just one word sums it up for me-stunning, along with the well thought out skilled practicalities.
