I am excited to be going back to Madera Canyon in Arizona in a few weeks to try my hands again at photographing hummingbirds. These guys can be tricky, darting between flowers in a blink of an eye and being chased off by dominate males defending their territory. We will be trying a new lighting system this year. Using the Impact Softbox Micro, we will be trying to simultaneously illuminating the color in the hummingbird and its gorget, which is the colorful area on its neck.
More to come as I get the rig set up and I make some practice shots.
