A few of you, have expressed an interest in my set up at the woods.
This image shows the general set up
The "hide" etc; - which I actually sit down in on a fold-away chair
This next image shows the view from the hide, including the perching platform, which slides in all directions to suit conditions etc;
Since the platform was built, I have acquired a "new" lens, so the rocks are to allow it to cantilever closer to the camera.
Unlike yesterday's Robin upload, which was taken with the natural background of dead ground ivy, today's L-tt image was taken using the green backdrop you can see in the distance
The light was so poor, that the natural background was total blackness. I must point out, that these images, taken with my Android, were during one of the moments when the sun broke through and scattered harsh light and shadows everywhere
The propped up board has one side painted a dull white, which I use to throw some light back at the subject. It helps to eliminate any shadows
I hope you find this of some interest
