    Nicely controlled lighting, not easy with that shiny shell.

    I use an infra red trigger that fires the camera when it is crossed. It is from Jama electronics who are based in France. A google should find the website if you wish to check it out.

    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.

    Hi Cristian,

    For these shots I use a high shutter speed(1/6400s) so all the light needs to be supplied by flashes. I have 2 for the foreground (the bird) and two for the background. The flash is set in high sync mode to allow the higher shutter speed. One flash is the master and the other three are set up as wireless slaves.

    There are a lot more misses than hits but it's great when it works and you can always delete the failures.
