Today I brought out the big gun…my speed light…to see if I could get better lighting for shots of the hummers bathing. It definitely puts out more light and even with a 2 stop reduction in output, it seems to light the area fairly well. However, as it turned out, I got excited and kept pressing the shutter release without waiting for the light to recycle so I had to increase exposure on some of the shots. I had the speed light pointed slightly up and away so it didn’t reflect off the hummer’s gorget which appears almost black in all but the first shot.
