Nicely controlled lighting, not easy with that shiny shell.

Coal Tit

Coal Tit by Marian

Hi Marian,

Nice effort. The reason the shot looks as it does is because of the combination of the slow shutter speed and the use of flash. Essentially , the flash discharges very quickly giving you the sharp head and wings, but the shutter remains open afterwards resulting in the blur to the head and beak (using the ambient light).

The technique I use for these shots is to use a fast shutter speed( in Manual mode) with the flashes set to hi speed sync. The problem with only one flash would be that the background would be dark. A second flash set as a slave allows you to light the background as well.

Hope this helps.
