Well I decided a few weeks ago that I want to take some humming bird photos. So I bought a humming bird feeder and didnt really think anything would happen. Then about 2 weeks ago we started seeing them. So I bought another feeder. Now we are getting them pretty regular like. One shows up every 10-20 minutes. SO now it is time to start photographing them. Lesson #1 - they are scared of the sound of the shutter so back up the camera far and use a remote. Lesson #2 - 1000 isn't fast enough. Lesson #3 - 1250 isnt much better. SO nothing good so far. then today in this cloudy crappy weather one decided to sit on the feeder post and hang out so I took 2 photos. While they are not great I will figure it out sooner or later...
hey steve not to jack your thread but i really don't think you need to go that high on the iso
i was shooting in the rain today and was shooting 100 up to about 800 and they were coming out fine
tripod of coarse
here are a couple from today
shooting a CANON 7D II
I had it that high because today was the first day she was landing. Prior to that they have just flown around. I have the camera on a tripod and am using a remote release. I may try to sit in the yard with the camera tomorrow night.
