All my photos are taken in my small backyard; so it's hummingbirds or bugs. Now that my wife is well, I'm looking to expand my horizons. This is an immature male Allen's hummingbird surprised by the strobes!

I just bought a Canon, now I have to go get some lights for that! I'll still use my Nikons, but I'll be switching over to a lighting system for Canon. I think you'll enjoy photographing them with the multiple lighting. After you set up the lights, leave them for at least 20 minutes so they can 'inspect' them. I had my wife sit next to a feeder Monday and she was caught up in the feather ball and fighting!

Yikes!!! We're looking into umbrellas now - are you using a black/silver reflective umbrella or a soft diffuser, or.... ? Small soft boxes look pretty cool too... a lot of info to sort through! We're thinking pick up a couple 33" black/silver ones for now... maybe... :)

I like the umbrellas. Presently I have two and need at least one more plus a bounce card or two. Umbrellas are usually dual purpose; they have the silver backing with the soft white front. The silver backing is detachable and, for harsh light, the white is the same. I prefer the strobe shooting through the opaque white. Other strobes are presently used with simple polypropylene diffuser covers that come with most strobes. I find a single strobe used in manual mode equipped with a PP diffuser stuffed with two kleenex to supply enough diffusion for quick shots and the iridescence can be corrected in PS and/or lightroom. I can send a procedure for either if you wish(most people know PS better than I).
