On this photo adventure we will focus on the following opportunities:
Multi-flash Hummingbird Photography: Learn techniques to use 4-6 flashes to achieve otherwise impossible flight photographs of these flying jewels. We will be sharing techniques for taking multi-flash images that actually look natural . Using flash effectively as a source of fill light: Because tropical regions are often cloudy – it is extremely important to learn how to use flash – either as fill or as a main source of light. Participants will also learn how to do set-ups for birds using more than one flash. These skills can easily be taken home and applied in your very own backyard!
